Gathering in Christ
…God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
…redemption enters into our lives when are upset enough to see we need it. At the wall of the world stands God with His arms outstretched; and when a man or woman is driven there, the consolations of Jesus Christ are given. It is not necessary for every man to go through these agonies, but it takes a time of agony to get the shallow skepticism knocked out of us. It is a good thing to be reverent with what we do not understand. A moral agony gives a man a second wind, and he runs better after it -- and is a good deal more likely to win.
