Temple: my contribution

Sunday, November 6, 2022
    Feast of William Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1944
    For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit...
    —1 Peter 3:18 (NIV)
    All is of God; the only thing of my very own which I can contribute to my own redemption is the sin from which I need to be redeemed.
    ... William Temple (1881-1944), Nature, Man and God, London: Macmillan, 1934, 1949, p. 401 (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 3:18; Matt. 20:26-28; Luke 21:28; Rom. 3:22-24; Eph. 1:7-8; Col. 1:13-14; Tit. 2:12-14; 1 John 2:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I place my sins at the foot of the Cross.
