do you go to see good being returned for evil?
Where do you go to receive grace in order that you might be able to
bless those who persecute you, to forgive those who sin against you, or to give
your life away for those who despise you?
Who knowingly blessed those who would betray Him, knowing God would
bless such sacrifice efficaciously?
Where do you go to see this work itself out – where God is truly glorified and
where good comes out of and from such suffering? Who was ever smitten and afflicted so much
while loving the world around Him? Who
gladly turned the other cheek? Who could
ever change you from the inside out so that you lived in such a way? Where could you go to become a man or a woman
who did so and did so gladly, from the heart?
who are baptized are welcome to come here – to listen – and to receive.
