Newton: the school of Christ

Wednesday, February 7, 2024
    The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God. For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.
    —Psalm 69:32-33 (KJV)
    I am persuaded that love and humility are the highest attainments in the school of Christ and the brightest evidences that he is indeed our master.
    ... John Newton (1725-1807), in a letter, 1757, The Works of the Rev. John Newton, v. II, New York: Williams and Whiting, 1810, p. 62 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 69:32-33; 25:9; Isa. 61:1-3; Matt. 5:5; John 13:34-35; 1 John 2:10; 4:20-21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You enable Your church to follow You in love and humility.
