Equipping the Called

Re: the disciples

"For our Savior's election respected not any merit or worth, but took them which were farthest off from likelihood of fitness, that afterwards their supernatural ability and performance beyond hope might cause the greater admiration..."

~Richard Hooker, The Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity, V.77.13

All I can say is Hallelujah.

Spiritual Food

"As long as the days of our warfare last, during the time that we are both subject to diminution and capable of augmentation in grace, the words of our Lord and Saviour Christ will remain forcible, 'Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.'"

~Richard Hooker, The Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity, V.67.1
