Overcoming the world

looking at the sunset copy 2

The best way to overcome the world
is not with morality or self-discipline.
Christians overcome the world
by seeing the beauty
and excellence of Christ.
They overcome the world
by seeing something more attractive
than the world: Christ.

–Thomas Chalmers
(1780–1847)

His love in our hearts

We know of no other way
by which to keep
the love of the world
out of our heart
than to keep in our hearts
the love of God…

–Thomas Chalmers
(1780–1847)
