Feast of All Saints

God is pursuing with omnipotent passion a worldwide purpose of gathering joyful worshipers for Himself from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. He has an inexhaustible enthusiasm for the supremacy of His name among the nations. Therefore, let us bring our affections into line with His, and, for the sake of His name, let us renounce the quest for worldly comforts and join His global purpose. If we do this, God’s omnipotent commitment to His name will be over us like a banner, and we will not lose, in spite of many tribulations.
... John S. Piper (b. 1946), Let the Nations Be Glad!, Baker Academic, 2010 (3rd ed.), p. 62 (see the book; see also Acts 9:16; John 15:20; 16:2-4; Rom. 8:35-39; 2 Tim. 2:9-10; more at Comfort, God, Omnipotence, Purpose, Renunciation, Worldly, Worship)

Feast of All Souls

“Not called,” did you say? Not heard the call, I think you should say. He has been calling loudly ever since He spoke your sins forgiven—if you are forgiven at all—entreating and beseeching you to be His ambassador. Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear Him bid you go and pull poor sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonised heart of humanity and listen to its pitying wail for help. Go and stand by the gates of Hell and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father’s house, and bid their brothers, and sisters, and servants, and masters not to come there. And then look the Christ in the face, whose mercy you profess to have got, and whose words you have promised to obey, and tell Him whether you will join us heart and soul and body and circumstances in this march to publish His mercy to all the world.
... William Booth (1829-1912), All the World, v. I, London: Salvation Army Book Stores, 1884-1885, n.1, Nov. 1884, p. 2 (see the book; see also Mark 16:15; Matt. 28:19; Luke 24:46-48; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 9:22; more at Bible, Call, Christ, Condemnation, Fire, Forgiveness, Hell, Mercy, Sinner)

Feast of Richard Hooker, Priest, Anglican Apologist, Teacher, 1600
Commemoration of Martin of Porres, Dominican Friar, 1639

The Christian needs another Christian who speaks God’s Word to him. He needs him again and again when he becomes uncertain and discouraged, for by himself he cannot help himself without belying the truth. He needs his brother as a bearer and proclaimer of the divine word of salvation. He needs his brother solely because of Jesus Christ. The Christ in his own heart is weaker than the Christ in the word of his brother; his own heart is uncertain, his brother’s is sure.
... Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945), Life Together [1954], tr. Daniel W. Bloesch & James H. Burtness, Fortress Press, 2004, p. 23 (see the book; see also 1 Tim. 4:13; Acts 15:32; Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:14-26; Gal. 6:6; Eph. 2:14; 4:11-13; Col. 1:27; 3:15-16; 2 Tim. 2:24; more at Christ, Discouragement, God, Heart, Jesus, Salvation, Truth, Uncertainty, Weakness)

Saturday, November 5, 2022

Self-rule will probably err. Moreover, those who choose their own path must be responsible for the consequences thereof, however serious; whereas when God rules, we need nothing save patient trust. He loves us far more than we can love ourselves, and He watches over us with more than a Father’s love. Trust in Him, and it is impossible for devil or man to hinder His grace.
... Jean Nicolas Grou (1731-1803), The Hidden Life of the Soul, London: Rivingtons, 1870, p. 1 (see the book; see also 1 Pet. 5:7; Ps. 52:7-8; 119:41-42; Nah. 1:7; 2 Cor. 1:9; 10:3-4; Jas. 2:12-13; more at Father, Grace, Love, Responsibility, Rule, Trust)

Feast of William Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1944

All is of God; the only thing of my very own which I can contribute to my own redemption is the sin from which I need to be redeemed.
... William Temple (1881-1944), Nature, Man and God, London: Macmillan, 1934, 1949, p. 401 (see the book; see also 1 Pet. 3:18; Matt. 20:26-28; Luke 21:28; Rom. 3:22-24; Eph. 1:7-8; Col. 1:13-14; Tit. 2:12-14; 1 John 2:2; more at God, Redemption, Salvation, Sin)

Tuesday, November 8, 2022
Feast of Saints & Martyrs of England

The “one thing” that the rich young ruler lacked was eternal life. The only thing a dead man lacks is life. The only thing a sick man lacks is health. The only thing a beggar lacks is money... The “one thing” a man lacks who is not a Christian is eternal life. Believe in Christ, and then go to work.
... Dwight Lyman Moody (1837-1899), from “Five ‘One Things’,” in Homiletic Review, v. XXXIII, I. K. Funk & D. S. Gregory, eds., New York: Funk & Wagnalls, 1897, p. 236 (see the book; see also Mark 10:21; Matt. 16:24-26; Luke 9:23-25; 18:22; Jas. 2:10; more at Christ, Death, Eternal life, Health, Money, Work)

Wednesday, November 9, 2022
Commemoration of Margery Kempe, Mystic, after 1433

People like to make their pastoral leaders feel necessary so that they can cop out of their responsibilities in the “priesthood of all believers.” If we rediscover our pastoral call, however, we know that we are merely equippers, prodders, encouragers, and promoters of all the people so that each one fulfills his or her vocation in the Church. Then no one is more “necessary” than any others, but all are set free to “be Church,” to live in a way corresponding to the priesthood to which each Christian has been called.
... Eugene H. Peterson (1932-2018), The Unnecessary Pastor, Marva J. Dawn, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2000, p. 228 (see the book; see also 2 Tim. 4:2; Rom. 12:6-8; 15:4-5; Eph. 4:11-13; 1 Thess. 5:11; Heb. 13:20-21; 1 Pet. 2:9; more at Call, Church, Fulfillment, Leader, Minister, People, Responsibility, Way)

Feast of Leo the Great, Bishop of Rome, 461

The fact of Jesus’ coming is the final and unanswerable proof that God cares.
... William Barclay (1907-1978), in Presbyterian Survey, v. 55 (see the book; see also Col. 1:13-15; John 3:16-17; 6:38; Rom. 5:8; Gal. 4:3-5; Phil. 2:5-8; Tit. 3:4-7; 1 John 4:9-10; more at Jesus, Love, Proof)

Friday, November 11, 2022
Feast of Martin, Monk, Bishop of Tours, 397

Christ died to save us, not from suffering, but from ourselves; not from injustice, far less from justice, but from being unjust. He died that we might live—but live as he lives, by dying as he died who died to himself that he might live unto God. If we do not die to ourselves, we cannot live to God, and he that does not live to God, is dead.
... George MacDonald (1824-1905), “Freedom”, in Unspoken Sermons, Third Series, London: Longmans, Green, 1889, p. 96 (see the book; see also Rom. 6:6-7; John 8:32-36; Rom. 8:9,13-14; Gal. 2:20; more at Christ, Death, God, Justice, Life, Salvation, Suffer)

Saturday, November 12, 2022

The first article of Christian faith is that man has one and only one true object of worship. There is one Holy God, creator of heaven and earth. He is Lord of all life. To Him we are beholden for our life in all its meaning and its hope. Monotheism for the Christian means that anything else which is put in the place of our loyalty to God is an idol. The worship of national power, or racial prestige, or financial success, or cultural tradition, is a violation of the one truth about our life, that all created things come from God. To commit life to the one true God is to refuse to have any other gods at all. Values there are in abundance, interests, plans, programs, loyalties to family and nation. But these are not gods. They do not save us. They are not holy in themselves.
... Daniel Day Williams (1910-1973), Interpreting Theology, 1918-1952, Daniel Day Williams, London: SCM Press, 1953, ed. 3, under alternative title, New York: Harper, 1959, p. 21 (see the book; see also Ex. 20:3; 1 Kings 18:21-40; Isa. 45:21-22; Jer. 25:6; Matt. 4:10; 1 Cor. 8:5-6; Col. 3:5; more at God, Idol, Monotheism, Worship)

Sunday, November 13, 2022
Feast of Charles Simeon, Pastor, Teacher, 1836

With this sweet hope of ultimate acceptance with God, I have always enjoyed much cheerfulness before men; but I have at the same time laboured incessantly to cultivate the deepest humiliation before God. I have never thought that the circumstance of God’s having forgiven me was any reason why I should forgive myself; on the contrary, I have always judged it better to loathe myself the more, in proportion as I was assured that God was pacified towards me.
... Charles Simeon (1759-1836), Memoirs of the Life of the Rev. Charles Simeon, Pittsburgh: R. Carter, 1847, p. 303 (see the book; see also Ezek. 16:62-63; Job 42:5-6; Pr. 3:34; Matt. 11:19; Mark 9:35; Luke 1:52; 22:26-27; Jas. 4:6; more at Assurance, Forgiveness, God, Hope, Humility)

Monday, November 14, 2022
Commemoration of Samuel Seabury, First Anglican Bishop in North America, 1796

What the world calls virtue is a name and a dream without Christ. The foundation of all human excellence must be laid deep in the blood of the Redeemer’s cross, and in the power of His Resurrection.
... Frederick W. Robertson (1816-1853), Sermons Preached at Trinity Chapel, Brighton, v. I, Boston: Ticknor & Fields, 1857, p. 94 (see the book; see also Phil. 3:10-14; John 11:25-26; Rom. 8:10-11; 1 Cor. 15:21-23; Col. 3:1-3; 1 Pet. 1:3; Rev. 1:18; more at Blood, Christ, Cross, Dream, Redemption, Resurrection, Virtue, World)

Tuesday, November 15, 2022
Commemoration of Oswald Chambers, spiritual writer, 1917

One wants to have love alone, not seeing that by denying God’s holiness and wrath, God’s love is deprived of its true depth and meaning. Is it not so even in human experience? The man who cannot become angry, cannot truly love. The man who passes over treachery, infidelity, breach of confidence as if it were nothing, cannot be a true friend and cannot be faithful himself. It is here that a decision of the first order takes place: he who refuses to hear of God’s wrath, judgment and condemnation, will never understand Jesus Christ. The living God is the God whose love is united with holiness. This paradox of holiness and mercy is... the essence of the biblical doctrine of God.
... Emil Brunner (1889-1966), The Scandal of Christianity, London: SCM Press, 1951, reprint, John Knox Press, 1965, p. 78 (see the book; see also Ps. 30:5; Isa. 42:24-25; Amos 4:10-12; Acts 17:30-31; more at Faith, God, Holiness, Infidelity, Jesus, Judgment, Love, Mercy)

Feast of Margaret, Queen of Scotland, Philanthropist, Reformer of the Church, 1093
Commemoration of Edmund Rich of Abingdon, Archbishop of Canterbury, 1240

In his enthusiasm, the evangelist often finds it difficult seriously to imagine that anyone could be called not to be an evangelist. The man of vision and imagination finds it difficult to see the value of those who do no more than plod on faithfully along a well-tried road. The man whose concern is personal dealing with people and leading them to understand God better finds it difficult to be patient with the theologian or the Christian philosopher whose work is in the quiet of a book-lined study. Yet the truth is that the wholeness which God is working to achieve is never complete in an individual, but through individuals living together as one body, each supplying the deficiencies of the others.
... J. B. Phillips (1906-1982), Making Men Whole, London: Highway Press, 1952, p. 66 (see the book; see also 1 Cor. 12:14-31; Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:4-7; Eph. 4:15-16; more at Body of Christ, Church, Evangelization, Leader, Philosophy, Theology)

Thursday, November 17, 2022
Feast of Hugh, Carthusian Monk, Bishop of Lincoln, 1200

We sometimes confer too great importance on our individual spiritual or religious life. To be sure, each of us is of infinite worth before God, for he gave his Son to save us. But above all each of us is important for the work which God demands. The Christian is not just the man who is saved by Christ; he is the man whom God uses for the salvation of others by Christ.
... Jacques Ellul (1912-1994), The Judgment of Jonah, tr. Geoffrey W. Bromiley, Grand Rapids: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1971, p. 88-89 (see the book; see also Acts 11:22-24; 8:30-31; 1 Cor. 1:17; 10:33; Eph. 4:11; more at Christ, God, Man, Salvation, Spiritual life, Work)

Friday, November 18, 2022

The people of God are not merely to mark time, waiting for God to step in and set right all that is wrong. Rather, they are to model the new heaven and new earth, and by so doing awaken longings for what God will someday bring to pass.
... Philip Yancey (b. 1949), Disappointment with God: Three Questions No One Asks Aloud, p. 237 (see the book; see also Pr. 4:18; Isa. 42:3; Mark 15:43; John 12:36; Phil. 2:14-16; Rev. 21:2; more at Awakening, Earth, God, Heaven, People, Time)

Feast of Hilda, Abbess of Whitby, 680
Commemoration of Elizabeth, Princess of Hungary, Philanthropist, 1231
Commemoration of Mechtild, Bèguine of Magdeburg, Mystic, Prophet, 1280

[The Holy Spirit is voluntarily] distributing to every one as he will; and therefore is this work done in so great variety, both as to the same person and divers. For the same person, full of joy sometimes in a great distress, full of consolation,—every promise brings sweetness when his pressures are great and heavy; another time, in the least trial [he] seeks for comfort, searches the promise, and it is far away. The reason is, the Spirit distributes as he will. And so with divers persons: to some each promise is full of life and comfort; others taste little all their days;—all upon the same account. And this faith especially regards in the whole business of consolation:—it depends on the sovereign will of the Holy Ghost; and so is not tied unto any rules or course of procedure.
... John Owen (1616-1683), Of Communion with God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost [1657], in Works of John Owen, v. II, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1851, p. 238 (see the book; see also John 3:8; 14:26; 16:13-15; more at Comfort, Consolation, Faith, Holy Spirit, Joy, People, Promise, Trial, Work)

Feast of Edmund of the East Angles, Martyr, 870
Commemoration of Priscilla Lydia Sellon, a Restorer of the Religious Life in the Church of England, 1876

We should always consider with greatest concern (even if it is only in a casual conversation or when we are alone with ourselves) that a free space is left through which God Himself can come to us.
... Karl Barth (1886-1968), from “He Himself” in Come Holy Spirit: Sermons, New York: Round Table Press, 1933, reprint, Mowbrays, 1978, p. 161 (see the book; see also Luke 5:16; Matt. 6:6; 14:23; Luke 10:38-42; John 6:15; more at Attitudes, Emptiness, God, Prayer)

Monday, November 21, 2022

To take up the cross of Christ is no great action done once for all; it consists in the continual practice of small duties which are distasteful to us.
... John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890), Parochial Sermons, v. 1, New York: D. Appleton, 1843, p. 42 (see the book; see also Rom. 13:10-11; Mark 8:34-35; 9:43-47; Luke 9:23; 14:26-27; 1 John 2:28; more at Action, Christ, Cross, Duty, Obedience)

Commemoration of Cecilia, Martyr at Rome, c.230
Commemoration of Clive Staples Lewis, Spiritual Writer, 1963

Our lifelong nostalgia, our longing to be reunited with something in the universe from which we now feel cut off, to be on the inside of some door which we have always seen from the outside, is no mere neurotic fancy, but the truest index of our real situation. And to be at last summoned inside would be both the glory and honor beyond all our merits and also the healing of that old ache.
... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), “The Weight of Glory” in The Weight of Glory, and other addresses, Macmillan Co., 1949, p. 12 (see the book; see also Ps. 84:1-2; 27:4; 42:1-2; 63:1-2; 84:10; 143:6; Matt. 18:20; John 4:23-24; Rev. 21:22; more at Door, Glory, Health, Honor, Kingdom, Longing)

Wednesday, November 23, 2022
Commemoration of Clement, Bishop of Rome, Martyr, c.100

[After the Ascension, the Apostles] returned to the city, conscious that they were entrusted with the Gospel message which was the salvation of the world, and at the end of their task they would again meet face to face the Lord Who had committed it to them. From that day to this, these two themes have been inseparable from health in the church.

Atkinson (1895-1971), Valiant in Fight, London: Inter-Varsity Fellowship of Evangelical Unions, 1937, p. 11 (see the book; see also Matt. 24:14; Isa. 65:1; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:46-47; John 14:3; Acts 1:7-11; Heb. 9:27-28; more at Ascension, Church, Commitment, God, Gospel, Health, Salvation)

Thanksgiving (U.S.)

[The enemy] comes and whispers suggestions of evil to us,—doubts, blasphemies, jealousies, envyings, and pride,—and then turns round and says, “Oh, how wicked you must be to think of such things! It is very plain that you are not trusting the Lord; for if you were, it would have been impossible for these things to have entered your heart.” This reasoning sounds so very plausible that the soul often accepts it as true, and at once comes under condemnation, and is filled with discouragement. Then it is easy for Satan to lead it on into actual sin. One of the most fatal things in the life of faith is discouragement. One of the most helpful is cheerfulness.
... Hannah Whitall Smith (1832-1911), Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life, London: F. E. Longley, 1876, p. 136 (see the book; see also Ps. 37:16-17; 31:22; Jer. 18:11-12; 1 Cor. 10:13; Eph. 4:26-27; 1 Tim. 6:6-8; Heb. 12:11-13; 1 John 4:4; more at Condemnation, Discouragement, Doubt, Enemy, Evil, Pride, Sin, Trust)

Friday, November 25, 2022
Commemoration of Katherine of Alexandria, Martyr, 4th century

As to the question, How shall we be persuaded that it came from God without recurring to a decree of the Church? it is just the same as if it were asked, How shall we learn to distinguish light from darkness, white from black, sweet from bitter? Scripture bears upon the face of it as clear evidence of its truth, as white and black do of their colour, sweet and bitter of their taste.
... John Calvin (1509-1564), The Institutes of the Christian Religion, v. I [1559], tr. John Allen, Presbyterian Board of Publication and Sabbath-School Work, 1921, I.vii.2, p. 76-77 (see the book; see also Ps. 93:5; John 1:4-5; Rom. 8:16; Eph. 2:19-20; more at Bitterness, Church, Darkness, God, Light, Question, Scripture, Truth)

Saturday, November 26, 2022
Commemoration of Isaac Watts, Hymnwriter, 1748

Had I the tongues of Greeks and Jews,
And nobler speech than angels use;
If love be absent, I am found,
Like tinkling brass, an empty sound.
Were I inspir’d to preach, and tell
All that is done in heaven and hell;
Or could my faith the world remove,
Still—I am nothing without love.
Should I distribute all my store,
To feed the hung’ry, clothe the poor;
Or give my body to the flame,
To gain a martyr’s glorious name;—
If love to God, and love to men,
Be absent—all my hopes are vain:
Nor tongues, nor gifts, nor fiery zeal,
The works of love can e’er fulfil.
... Isaac Watts (1674-1748), Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs, ed. Samuel Melanchthon Worcester, Boston: Crocker & Brewster, 1834, n. 134, p. 360 (see the book; see also 1 Cor. 13:1-3; Gal. 5:6; 1 Pet. 4:8; 2 Pet. 2:18; 1 John 4:8; more at Emptiness, Gifts, God, Hope, Love, Man, Martyr, Poverty, Preach, Zeal)

Advent I

The church had magnificent buildings, superb equipment, trained leadership, excellent teaching materials, organizational ability, and yet lacked that one thing that could take all these tools and make them the channel of God’s will. In spite of its ever-increasing membership, the church lacks the spirit of God’s growing love and understanding that can transform it from an efficient organization into a loving, dynamic fellowship where men and women become vitally alive with faith, love, and hope.
... Thomas M. Steen, “Renewal in the Church”, in Spiritual Renewal through Personal Groups, John L. Casteel, ed., NY: Association Press, 1957, p. 30 (see the book; see also Acts 4:32-35; Isa. 9:6-7; John 13:34-35; 2 Cor. 1:21-22; Gal. 6:2; Eph. 1:22-23; Col. 1:24; 1 John 2:10; 2 John 1:5; more at Church, Faith, Fellowship, God, Growth, Hope, Love, Teach, Understanding)

Monday, November 28, 2022

If religion calleth us to a life of watching and prayer, it is because we live amongst a crowd of enemies, and are always in need of the assistance of God. If we are to confess and bewail our sins, it is because such confessions relieve the mind, and restore it to ease; as burdens and weights taken off the shoulders, relieve the body, and make it easier to itself. If we are to be frequent and fervent in holy petitions, it is to keep us steady in the sight of our true good, and that we may never want the happiness of a lively faith, a joyful hope, and well-grounded trust in God. If we are to pray often, it is that we may be often happy in such secret joys as only prayer can give; in such communications of the Divine Presence, as will fill our minds with all the happiness, that beings not in Heaven are capable of.

It is a fearful case to be an unsanctified professor, but much more to be an unsanctified preacher. Doth it not make you tremble when you open the Bible, lest you should read there the sentence of your own condemnation? When you pen your sermons, little do you think that you are drawing up indictments against your own souls! ... Oh what an aggravated misery is this, to perish in the midst of plenty, and to famish with the bread of life in our hands, while we offer it to others, and urge it on them!
... Richard Baxter (1615-1691), The Reformed Pastor [1655], in The Practical Works of Richard Baxter, v. IV, G. Virtue, 1838, p. 423 (see the book; see also Jas. 3:1; Ps. 32:1-2; Matt. 25:45; John 3:18-19; 6:35,48-51; Rom. 5:1-2; 8:1-2; more at Bible, Bread, Condemnation, Fear, Preacher, Sermon, Soul)

Feast of Andrew the Apostle

[On his experiences during internment by the Japanese during WWII] When I muttered “Forgive them,” I wondered how far I was being dramatic, and if I really meant it; because I looked at their faces as they stood round, taking it in turn to flog me, and their faces were hard and cruel, and some of them were evidently enjoying their cruelty. But, by the Grace of God, I saw those men not as they were, but as they had been. Once they were little children playing with their brothers and sisters—happy in their parents’ love, in those far-off days before they had been conditioned by their false nationalist ideals, and it is hard to hate little children. So I saw them not as they were, but as they were capable of becoming, redeemed by the power of Christ, and I knew that I should say “Forgive.”

Leonard Wilson (1897-1970), from a broadcast address, 1946, in A Treasury of the Kingdom: an anthology, Emmeline Alethea Blackburn, ed., Oxford University Press, 1954 (see the book; see also Rom.12:14; Matt. 5:7; 6:14-15; 18:21-22; Mark 11:25; Luke 6:27-28; 23:34; Phlmn. 1:18; 1 Pet. 3:9; more at Christ, Forgiveness, God, Grace, Happiness, Hatred, Man, Redemption, Wonder)
