Here Was Goodness

Christ graphic 77

Then there quietly appeared, out of the obscurity of a country village, and out of the lowliness of a carpenter’s shop, a Man… There was something about the Man that made the best of men feel that they were in deepest need. And yet the worst of men felt drawn to him.

Here was goodness attractive, winsome, compelling… Here was goodness that was not meticulous, but merciful, not standing on pedestals to be worshiped, but bending in lowly service over the lost. Here was goodness not pharisaical, but friendly, not terrible, but tender… Never did majesty and meekness so blend and become so beautiful as here.

— E. Stanley Jones,
The Christ of Every Road
