Thought Provokers for Sunday, May 28, 2017

This is how Christ appears to us 99 percent of the time–
in ordinary, simple, everyday ways rather than in dramatic and awesome events.
The resurrected Christ walked with men on the road to Emmaus,
he had a fish dinner with Peter,
and I am convinced that all of us are invited
to have such experiences and encounters NOW,
in these closing years of the twentieth century.

The Son of God was made the son of man
that the children of man might be made children of God.

St. Athanasius

Not one word is said in the whole of the New Testament
about our Lord’s intellect;
only always about His Heart.

I have a great need for Christ;
I have a great Christ for my need.

Charles H. Spurgeon

Jesus loved us while we were yet sinners.
Jesus’ love for us did not depend on what we could give him in return.
The love of Jesus is completely disinterested and gratuitous
in the sense that his love in no way depends on the loving qualities
or the response of men.
Jesus’ love is creative, not responsive:
giving, not possessing.

Charles Curran
