Bronnert: knowledge of God the source of all

Sunday, March 19, 2023
    Feast of Joseph of Nazareth
[The LORD:]
“Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom
    or the strong man boast of his strength
    or the rich man boast of his riches,
but let him who boasts boast about this:
    that he understands and knows me,
that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness,
    justice and righteousness on earth,
    for in these I delight,” declares the LORD.
    —Jeremiah 9:23-24 (NIV)
    [Continued from yesterday]
    A love for others will result in the Christian being concerned for the total good of others: material, social and spiritual. A concern for the social and material should not be a substitute for man in his relationship with God, nor should it be viewed as a convenient bridge to the spiritual; rather, because he knows God, he reflects the character of God.
    ... David Bronnert, “The Gospel and Culture”, in The Changing World, Bruce Kaye, ed., vol. 3 of Obeying Christ in a Changing World, John Stott, gen. ed., 3 vol., London: Fountain, 1977, p. 120 (see the book)
    See also Jer. 9:23-24; Amos 5:14-15,23-24; Mic. 6:8; Matt. 25:34-36; Mark 12:32-34; John 3:3; 10:27
Quiet time reflection:
    Have I shown forth God’s character today?
