The Incomparable Christ

How sifted from the local and temporary and the trivial his mind was! He was always on the worthwhile, on the thing that mattered. He was never misled by a subordinate issue; not once did he slip away from the primary into the secondary. His finger goes unerringly to the essentials in every matter.

Grace and Truth

Christ 67

Never did word and work so blend in harmony as they did in him. They blended like the words and music of a song. He taught men, and this words had the ring of reality about them. Others quoted authorities; he taught with authority of his own insight. Others came seeking truth; he came proclaiming it. Truth gushed forth from his soul like a fountain from a hillside… and men listened to these words as if they were hearing some long-lost chord, something that belonged to them, that belonged to the very structure and make-up of their being. They felt that this was the soul’s homeland.
