From Our Exchanges

[The Living Church]

The vision of the pure in heart sees the divine in ourselves, and sees it in others. It is so easy to see the bad in human life. Christianity is seeing the good which comes from the divine in the heart of man. The nearer one comes to God, the more of the divine he sees in man. The brotherhood of man in Christ is the brotherhood of the divine within ourselves. Christ did not reveal himself simply to show us what righteousness is or what God is, but to show men how they could be righteous, how they could be like God. He did not come with a message of despair, but with a message of hope. If a man of physical prowess should show to incurables the strength of sinew and muscle, he would carry to them nothing but disappointment. Christ came not only to reveal perfect righteousness, but to show how we can become righteous. He came not only to reveal God in man, but to show us how our divine life is to grow until we become like Him.
