We are an Easter people and Alleluia is our song. A Christian should be an Alleluia from head to foot.
There is not much use in making long speeches to Jesus about our pains, especially on Good Friday.
No unity with God is possible except by an exceedingly great love.
St. Dimitri of Rostov (1651-1709)
Throughout history we have been searching for words that link what we know to what we long for, and all we get are glimpses through a glass darkly.
Wm. Paul Young
A Christian is one who points at Christ and says, “I can’t prove a thing, but there is something about His eyes and His voice. There’s something about the way He carries His head, His hands, the way He carries His cross--the way He carries me.”
Each person has to will new life, and to go and on and on choosing it to be transformed; every grade and divine help will be given, but the choice is always ours and ours alone. Divine love will not force anyone to enter or realize the Kingdom.
According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride….Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.
Whatever need or trouble you are in, there is always something to help you in the Bible, if only you go on reading till you come to the word God specially has for you.
