A Profound Paradox of Christian

| Comments

A real Christian is an odd number, anyway.

He feels supreme love for the One whom he has never seen;
talks familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see;
expect to go to heaven on the virtue of Another;
empties himself in order to be full;
admits he is wrong so he can be declared right;
goes down in order to get up;
is strongest when he is weakest;
richest when he is poorest;
and happiest when he feels worst.

He dies so he can live;
forsakes in order to have;
gives away so he can keep;
see the invisible;
hears the inaudible;
and knows that which passeth knowlegde.
