Underhill: words a medium for God

Friday, August 12, 2022
    All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips. “Isn’t this Joseph’s son?” they asked.
    —Luke 4:22 (NIV)
    Words are merely carriers of the secret, supernatural communications, the light and call of God. That is why spiritual books bear such different meanings for different types and qualities of soul, why each time we read them they give us something fresh, as we can bear it.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), The Light of Christ, New York: Longmans, Green, 1949, p. 56 (see the book)
    See also Luke 4:22; Matt. 7:28-29; Luke 21:15; 1 Cor. 14:9; Heb. 4:12-13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, let fresh truths break out before me as I read Your word.
