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

When Jesus was hung on the cross and crucified, the high official, that proud representative of the whole Roman Empire, said, shortly before this overpowering humiliation, “Behold, a man!” Behold the man! Jesus, the man! He who reveals God as a man, this is the one whom we seek. He who reveals God as love, this is the human being with whom we want to have communion.
