The very term ‘heart’ loses all meaning if you confine it to God and remove it from the world. The heart is sent by God to the world. Its inner is for the outer.
The world is the fate that the heart cannot escape; and the world, when assumed by passion, becomes the destiny to which the heart is called.
The calling comes ‘through Christ, in the Spirit.’
Action in fidelity to the Cross is the core of Christian witness.
To be nailed to the place of hell in this world– where something immense for the heart’s victory in God is at stake. In this place, where you know you must act for something at stake, you sweat ‘white beads’ and even blood.
Let our stand be clear cut.
To honour Christ, in action, with blood.
