From Our Exchanges

[The Christian Work]

Are we not right in supposing that at this moment, in spite of all your feelings of unworthiness and self-reproach, you are dimly aware — or perhaps vividly aware — that there is a you undeclared, a you known only to yourself, who in a manner of speaking is still the ideal of your dreams? Have you not the feeling that there is something in you which is better than any of your performances, higher than the general level of your achievements? We have; we cannot get away from it; and we believe most people have it in some degree. Notwithstanding all the evil you have done and the good you have left undone, you remain aware that there is a you which has never come down, which is still aiming at the skies, which is not the poor weak creature that your spiritual history would seem to prove. What are we to say about this? We say that you see true. That is the you of which Christ has never let go, and through which he will redeem all your poor broken life. "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one."
