Incarnation

"He became what we are, that we might become what He is."

           - St. Athanasius (4th cent.)

-------------------------

"For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to sympathize with us in our weakness, but one who has been tempted in every respect as we are, yet without sin."

          - The Epistle to the Hebrews, chapter 4, verse 15

"Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect."

          - The Gospel According to St. Matthew, chapter 5, verse 48

    1. Likewise, and you're welcome.

      I always find it personally helpful to recall that God's Mercy doesn't repeal the requirements of holiness. . .

  5. Heck of a good quote, Craig. I wasn't familiar with that one. As the New Year approaches (and our own "little" Christmas celebration on Epiphany) I am mindful of the good friends I've had the blessing to acquire via the internet. You are numbered among those. May your 2014 be spectacular!
