Forsyth: finding a Master

Sunday, November 21, 2021
    [Jesus:] “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have only one Master and you are all brothers.”
    —Matthew 23:8 (NIV)
    It is useless to preach the Kingdom when we do not carry into the centre of life the control of a King. The first duty of every soul is to find not its freedom but its Master. And the first charge of every Church is to offer, nay to mediate, Him.
    ... P. T. Forsyth (1848-1921), Positive Preaching and Modern Mind, New York: A. C. Armstrong & Son, 1907, p.42 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 23:8; 8:19; Rom. 6:18; Gal. 5:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I cast all other masters away.
