There are certain things as old as the Xn century that you may expect to find and ought to find in a Christian Fellowship.
These are the assurance of God, his intelligibility in Christ, Christ’s availability for any human problem.
1. Mystery of life overwhelms our spirit, the uncertainty, and the confusion of thought, but on thing stands sure when you swing into the circle of X influence. You call God father, and say with supreme venture of faith, “Ye though he slay me yet will I trust him.” God is—and is the rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
2. Abstract Ideas even ideals need to be clothed in terms of flesh and life for most of us to understand. God did this in X—who shared our life and took upon himself the form of a servant he out of the safe stuff that is available for us, in which we are immersed, took bread of common existence and made something sacramental.
3. As he was so he is—the same forever. Interested, helpful, correcting, and encouraging.
