Where Jesus’ influence makes men into real men, their life becomes genuine and pure. It shines into the darkness of the world around and unmasks what is false and untrue—what is trying to hide. But the light which Jesus kindles is not exhausted by just making a situation clear. Cold light has no part in the kingdom of God. What matters is to live in God’s heart and from God’s heart. As with the sun, the brightness of His being is inseparable from life-kindling warmth.- Eberhard Arnold

Only one thing matters: to be open to the living God, to the life-giving Spirit of Jesus Christ, so that He may awaken and bring into being the same life that He gave to. If we are open in this way, new unities of life will constantly arise in which the love of complete community encompasses and penetrates everything. Complete community is a matter of new birth and resurrection. This has been given even to our time by the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ in the power of eternal birth and new resurrection.
