Beecher: but for Calvary

Friday, September 2, 2022
    Commemoration of Martyrs of Papua New Guinea, 1942
    When [Judas] was gone, Jesus said, “Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him. If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.”
    —John 13:31-32 (NIV)
    The whole earth will have dwindled, and would have gone out, were it not for one glowing spot,—Calvary. For that mountain it shall stand forever, and, glowing through all space, shine as a mighty jewel that God hath set as a memorial of his everlasting love!
    ... Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887), Eyes and Ears, Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1862, p. 58 (see the book)
    See also John 13:31-32; Matt. 27:33-34; Mark 15:22-23; Luke 23:33; John 3:16-17; 12:16,23,28-32; 17:4-5; 19:17-18; Acts 3:13; Heb. 13:12-13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have expressed Your love to the world.
