Shedd: empty people

Wednesday, January 27, 2021
    Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, you are looking for me, not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”
    —John 6:26-27 (NIV)
    The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
    ... Charlie Shedd (1915-2004), quoted in The Greening of the Church, Findley B. Edge, Waco, Tex.: Word Books, 1971, p. 9 (see the book)
    See also John 6:26-27; Isa. 9:2; Amos 8:11-13; Luke 1:53; John 1:5; 3:19; Eph. 4:18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your food alone truly satisfies.
