Signs of the Times

[Rev. Theodore P. Stephens, in the Journal-Courier, New Haven, Connecticut, Jan. 27, 1925]

Christ Jesus brought the love of God down into the experience and comprehension of men. It was not enough that men be shown the right, they must be inspired to love the right. Jesus declared by his life ... that there was an infinite heart as well as an infinite Mind at the center of the universe. ... From the cross of Calvary the light of love has shone into men's hearts, and they have turned in shame from the far country of sin to the Father's house. Of the hard, rebellious views of life that men hold without the light of Calvary, we need not speak. Furthermore, Christ actually kindles the fire of love in other hearts. "Behold how these Christians love one another," was the amazed tribute of an early observer of Christianity. Jesus said, "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."
