Pascal: Christ in the middle

Thursday, January 15, 2015
    The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
    —1 Corinthians 15:56-57 (NIV)
    The knowledge of God without that of man’s misery causes pride. The knowledge of man’s misery without that of God causes despair. The knowledge of Jesus Christ constitutes the middle course, because in Him we find both God and our misery.
    ... Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), Pensées (Thoughts) [1660], P.F. Collier & Son, 1910, #527, p. 173 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 15:56-57; John 16:33; Rom. 3:22-24; 8:37; Gal. 3:10-13; 1 John 5:3-5;
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have rescued me when I was without hope.
