Continuing to climb

Those on the heights
Are not the souls
Who never erred nor went astray,
Who trod unswerving
To their goals
Along a smooth, rose-bordered way.
Nay, those who stand
Where first comes dawn,
Are those who stumbled–
but went on.

He was the message

Christ 1D copy 2Fundamentally, our Lord’s message was Himself. He did not come merely to preach a Gospel; He himself is that Gospel. He did not come merely to give bread; He said, “I am the bread.” He did not come merely to shed light; He said, “I am the light.” He did not come merely to show the door; He said, “I am the door.” He did not come merely to name a shepherd; He said, “I am the shepherd.” He did not come merely to point the way; He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
