To be like Christ–is the sum of the Christian’s excellence.
To be with Christ–is the fullness of the Christian’s joy.

Christian humility does not consist in denying what there is of good in us–but in an abiding sense of ill-desert, and in the consciousness that what we have of good is due to the grace of God.

This is true religion:
to approve what God approves,
to hate what God hates, and
to delight in what God delights.
