Barth: in the Presence

Friday, January 7, 2022
    For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by me and Silas and Timothy, was not “Yes” and “No,” but in him it has always been “Yes.” For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.
    —2 Corinthians 1:19-20 (NIV)
    If we do not pray, we fail to realize that we are in the presence of God.
    ... Karl Barth (1886-1968), Prayer, Westminster John Knox Press, 2002, p. 15 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 28:19-20; Luke 18:1; Rom. 8:26; 2 Cor. 1:19-20; Phil. 4:6; 2 Tim. 2:13; Heb. 4:16; 10:19-22
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me an attitude of prayer wherever I go.
