Principles and Practices - October 13

God's Will - Not Ours

Sacrifice ennobles man, it does not degrade him. It destroys everything that hinders his upward progression; herein lies its divine function. The practice of true Christianity implies a life of complete submission to the will of God, instead of an existence governed by our own whims and fancies. This is the meaning of the expression: 'To me to live is Christ.'
