Neill: from faith to faith

Thursday, June 27, 2024
    But these [accounts] are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
    —John 20:31 (NIV)
    Every book of the New Testament is written from faith to faith, by believers for the edification of other believers, or for those who are not yet believers that they may be brought to the faith. But this faith is not to be confused with mere acquiescence or intellectual assent; it involves death and life, confrontation and commitment, as almost every book in the New Testament makes plain, to a way that is inseparable from danger and suffering.
    ... Stephen Neill (1900-1984), Jesus Through Many Eyes, Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1976, p. 194-195 (see the book)
    See also John 20:31; Luke 1:1-4; John 21:24; Rom. 1:17; 1 Cor. 4:14; 5:11; 14:37; 2 Cor. 2:9; 1 Tim. 3:14-15; 2 Pet. 3:15-16; 1 John 2:7-8,26; 2 John 1:5-6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your people are safe in Your hands, informed by Your word.
