October 17 Afternoon Quotes of The Day

Growing by Degrees
1 Corinthians 3:6; Ephesians 4:15–16; 2 Thessalonians 1:3; 1 Peter 2:2; 2 Peter 3:18

Everyone, though born of God in an instant, and sanctified in an instant, yet undoubtedly grows by slow degrees.

All Sacraments but Reminders
Luke 22:19; 1 Corinthians 10:16; 11:24–25

All the sacraments that are left here in earth are but minds of the body of Christ, for a sacrament is no more to say but a sign or mind of a thing passed, or a thing to come; for when Jesus spoke of the bread, and said to His disciples, “As you do this thing, do it in mind of me,” it was set for a mind of good things passed of Christ’s body.
