“Radical obedience to Christ is not easy... It's not comfort, not health, not wealth, and not prosperity
in this world. Radical obedience to Christ risks losing all these things. But in the end, such risk finds
its reward in Christ. And he is more than enough for us.”

“The Christian says, 'Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A
baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a
thing as water. Men feel sexual desire: well, there is such a thing as sex. If I find in myself a desire
which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for
another world. If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it, that does not prove that the universe is a
fraud. Probably earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it, but only to arouse it, to suggest the
real thing. If that is so, I must take care, on the one hand, never to despise, or to be unthankful for,
these earthly blessings, and on the other, never to mistake them for the something else of which they
are only a kind of copy, or echo, or mirage. I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country,
which I shall not find till after death; I must never let it get snowed under or turned aside; I must
make it the main object of life to press on to that country and to help others to do the same.”

“And shall I pray Thee change Thy will, my Father,
Until it be according unto mine?
But, no, Lord, no, that never shall be, rather
I pray Thee blend my human will with Thine.

I pray Thee hush the hurrying, eager longing,


I pray Thee soothe the pangs of keen desire—
See in my quiet places, wishes thronging—
Forbid them, Lord, purge, though it be with fire.”

“We live by revelation, as Christians, as artists, which means we must be careful never to get set into
rigid molds. The minute we begin to think we know all the answers, we forget the questions, and we
become smug like the Pharisee who listed all his considerable virtues, and thanked God that he was
not like other men.

Unamuno might be describing the artist as well as the Christian as he writes, "Those who believe
they believe in God, but without passion in the heart, without anguish of mind, without uncertainty,
without doubt, and even at times without despair, believe only in the idea of God, and not in God
himself.”

“His grace is cheapened when you think that He has only forgiven you of your sins up to the time you
got saved, and after that point, you have to depend on your confession of sins to be forgiven. God's
forgiveness is not given in installments.”

“Life is wasted if we do not grasp the glory of the cross, cherish it for the treasure that it is, and cleave

foolishness to us—a crucified God—must become our wisdom and our power and our only boast in
this world.”
