Shepherd: witness to facts

Tuesday, February 20, 2024
    Commemoration of Cecile Isherwood, Founder of the Community of the Resurrection, Grahamstown, South Africa, 1906
    And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.
    —1 Corinthians 15:17 (NIV)
    The Gospel is not presented to mankind as an argument about religious principles. Nor is it offered as a philosophy of life. Christianity is a witness to certain facts—to events that have happened, to hopes that have been fulfilled, to realities that have been experienced, to a Person who has lived and died and been raised from the dead to reign for ever.
    ... Massey H. Shepherd, Jr. (1913-1990), Far and Near
    See also 1 Cor. 15:14-17; Luke 19:10; Rom. 4:25; 1 Cor. 1:19-24; Col. 2:8; 1 John 4:2-3; 2 John 1:7
Quiet time reflection:
    Do I think about philosophy and ideas instead of enjoying the presence of Jesus in my heart?
