Follow up from Brad

Here is a cool quote I got that kinda follows up on Brad's poem about the priesthood. This is about the life of a Christian:
"A real Christian in an odd number anyway. He feels supreme love for One whom he has never seen, talks familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see, expects to go to heaven on the virtue of Another, empties himself in order to be full, admits he is wrong so he can be declared right, goes down in order to get up, is strongest when he is weakest, richest when he is poorest, and happiest when he feels worst. He dies so he can live, forsakes in order to have, gives away so he can keep, sees the invisible, hears the inaudible, and knows that which passes knowledge.- A. W. Tozer"

When you think really about some of the things that we are called to do and want to do out of love for God and His Son, Jesus Christ, it's crazy! This put a little bit of perspective on that. I think its a good meditation to think about the life of a Christian, especially in this hectic world.
