You know me and you know where I came from.
Yet I have not come of my own accord:
but he who sent me is true;
You do not know him’
but I know him
because I have my being from him
and it was he who sent me.

John 7: 28-29

“Fellowship with Jesus Christ is not a commitment to suffer as much as possible, but a commitment to listen with him to God’s love without fear. . . . When obedience becomes our first and only concern, then we too can move into the world with compassion and feel the suffering of the world so deeply that through our compassion we can give new life to others.”
