Johnson: no temple

Saturday, March 23, 2024
    And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
    —Revelation 21:22 (KJV)
    We ought not to forget that the whole Church, quite as much as any part of it, exists for the sole reason of finally becoming superfluous. Of heaven St. John the Divine said, “I saw no temple therein.”
    ... Howard A. Johnson (1915-1974), “The Vocation of the Anglican Communion (Theme Address),” included in Anglican Congress 1963: Report of Proceedings, Eugene Rathbone Fairweather, ed., Editorial Committee, Anglican Congress, 1963, p. 227 (see the book)
    See also Rev. 21:22; 1 Kings 8:27; 2 Chr. 2:6; 6:18; Ps. 51:17; Isa. 57:15; 66:1; John 4:23-24; 14:23; 1 Cor. 3:18; 6:19; Eph. 2:21-22; 1 Pet. 2:4-5; 1 John 3:24
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, we will worship You in Your presence.
