CQOD: 12/09/05 -- Campbell: Christianity is Christ

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 9, 2005
    Thomas said to him, "Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?" Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
    -- John 14:5,6 (ESV)

    How can we know that what Jesus has shown us of God is the truth; or how do we know when we look into the face of Jesus that we are looking into the face of God? The answer is so plain and simple that it is a marvel how intelligent men can manage to miss it as they do. Look at what Christ has done for the soul of man: that is your answer. Christianity is just Christ—nothing more and nothing less. It is a way of life, and He is that way. It is the truth about human destiny, and He is that truth.
    ... R. J. Campbell (1867-1956), The Call of Christ [1932]

Quiet time reflection:
    Focus my life on Christ-likeness., I pray.
