“Because Jesus Christ alone is the Lord of glory, we are to reject the kinds of pretense and discrimination toward other people that depend on a working theory of our own personal superiority. Because of His glory, we are able to relax, without the need to impress other people with our glory. This becomes for us a reason for humility and an altogether healthy antidote to pretentiousness or discrimination toward others.
I know One who deserves the glory, so my head is not so easily turned by the lesser luminosities of life.”
“The more genuine and the deeper our community becomes,
the more will everything else between us recede,
the more clearly and purely will Jesus Christ and His work become the one and only thing that is vital between us”
— Dietrich Bonhoeffer
