day no. 13,064: are you devoted to a personal cause or to a Person who was and is the first cause?

I came across this today while reading Mr. Chambers

"Paul was devoted to a Person, not to a cause. He was absolutely Jesus Christ’s. He saw nothing else and he lived for nothing else."

It is easier to embrace principles than it is to embrace people.

It is easier to die on hills than to die to yourself.

Without Him our practices and principles point only to human progress.

Humanity will never progress to the point of paying off the debt that is owed in full.

Jesus paid it all.

The Person and work of Jesus Christ alone are the hope of humanity.
