Today's Bible Verse
“Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all say the same thing, and that there be not among you divisions; but that ye be perfectly united in the same mind and in the same opinion.”
The Spirit and the word cannot be separated without falling into fanatiscm on the one hand, or into rationalism on the other - without putting oneself outside the place of dependence upon God and of His guidance. Mere reason would become the master of some, imagination of others: moreover there is nothing more imaginative than reason when destitute of guidance.
Hymn 446, Verse 2
Just as I am - poor, wreched, blind;
Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
Yea, all I need, in Thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come!
