We are silent at the beginning of the day because God should have the first word,
and we are silent before going to sleep because the last word also belongs to God.
The soul, like the body, lives by what it feeds on.
Life for the Christian is a dialogue with God.
J. H. Oldham
This is that mystery which is rich in divine grace unto sinners:
wherein by a wonderful exchange, our sins are no longer ours but Christ's;
and the righteousness of Christ is not Christ's but ours.
He has emptied himself of his righteousness that he might clothe us in it,
and fill us with it: and he has taken our evils upon himself that he
might deliver us from them.
Every flower of the field, every fiber of a plant, every particle of an insect,
carries with it the impress of its Maker, and can- if duly considered-
read us lectures of ethics or divinity.
I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year,
'Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.'
And he replied, 'Go out into the darkness, and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be better than light, and safer than a known way.'
Jesus is all we have; he is all we need and all we want.
We are shipwrecked on God and stranded on omnipotence!
If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy,
the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.
C.S.Lewis, Mere Christianity
Once a man is united to God, how could he not live forever?
