CQOD: 10/24/06 -- Coleridge: Eternal transformation

Christian Quotation of the Day

October 24, 2006
    Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.
    -- Romans 8:1-2 (ESV)

    God’s child in Christ adopted—Christ my all—
    What that earth boasts were not lost cheaply, rather
    Than forfeit that blest name, by which I call
    The Holy One, the Almighty God, my Father?—
    Father! in Christ we live, and Christ in Thee—
    Eternal Thou and everlasting we.
    The heir of heaven, henceforth I fear not death:
    In Christ I live! in Christ I draw the breath
    Of the true life!—let then earth, sea, and sky
    Make war against me! On my front I show
    Their mighty Master’s seal. In vain they try
    To end my life, that can but end its woe.
    Is that a death-bed where a Christian lies?
    Yes, but not his—’tis Death itself there dies.
        ... Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)
