Cecil: the foundation

Monday, March 20, 2023
    Feast of Cuthbert, Bishop of Lindisfarne, Missionary, 687
    By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
    —1 Corinthians 3:10-11 (NIV)
    We cannot build too confidently on the merits of Christ, as our only hope; nor can we think too much of the mind that was in Christ, as our great example.
    ... Richard Cecil (1748-1810), The Works of the Rev. Richard Cecil, v. III, Boston: Crocker and Brewster, 1825, p. 144 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 3:10-11; Isa. 28:16; Acts 4:11-12; 1 Cor. 2:16; 3:12-15; 11:1; Eph. 2:19-20; Phil. 2:5-7; 1 Tim. 1:16; 2 Tim. 2:19; 1 Pet. 2:6-8,21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the rock on which I stand.
