Brainerd: where to advance the kingdom

Thursday, January 6, 2022
    When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!”
    —Luke 5:8 (NIV)
    Of late, I have thought much of having the kingdom of Christ advanced in the world; but now I saw I had enough to do within myself. The Lord be merciful to me a sinner, and wash my soul!
    ... David Brainerd (1718-1747), entry for April 8, 1743, Memoirs of the Rev. David Brainerd, New Haven: S. Converse, 1822, p. 96 (see the book)
    See also Ezra 9:6; Ps. 40:11-12; Luke 5:8; 7:6-9; 18:10-14; 1 Cor. 1:11-13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I long for the day when You finish the work You began in me.
