When the True Friend Comes

The character of Jesus has not only been the highest pattern of virtue, but the longest incentive in its practice, and has exerted so deep an influence, that it may be truly said that the simple record of three short years of active life has done more to regenerate and to soften mankind than all the disquisitions of philosophers and all the exhortations of moralists.

Not of the World

Christians... live in the flesh, but not according to the flesh. They pass their time on earth, but exercise their citizenship in heaven. They obey the enacted laws, and by their private lives they overcome the laws. They love all men, and are persecuted of all men. They are unknown and yet condemned; they are put to death, and yet raised to life. They are beggars, and yet make many rich; they lack all things, and yet abound in all things.
