Good Words for Today: August 26

“Many Christians today talk about ‘the difficulties of our times’ as though we should have to wait for better ones before the Christian religion can take root.  It is heartening to remember that this faith took root and flourished amazingly in conditions that would have killed anything less vital in a matter of weeks.  These early Christians were on fire with the conviction that they had become, through Christ, literally sons of God; they were pioneers of a new humanity, founders of a new Kingdom.  They still speak to us across the centuries. Perhaps if we believed what they believed, we might achieve what they achieved.” J. B. Phillips
