Quotemeal: Dec. 20th, 2023

Wednesday, December 20, 2023

"The historical facts around Christ's life are both outward and clear. Certainly the theological truths that define Jesus are sure. Yet the realities of faith are always a matter of the heart. The fullness of his great love defies definition, and yet the open glory of his salvation spills over the edges of our most private selves."
— Calvin Miller
