“Jonathan Edwards said Jesus combines 'divine excellencies as otherwise would have seemed to us utterly incompatible in the same subject.'** When you see opposites like compassion and honesty come together in a person, it’s just striking and you’re drawn to that. It touches your soul."
“When you watch Jesus, you begin to sense that he has a center outside of himself. It’s like a gyroscope – an internal stabilizing device. What you’re looking at when you see this in Jesus is his prayer life with his Father..."
““For us, I think this is where the gift of the Holy Spirit comes in. You can study Jesus until you are blue in the face, but you’re always left with, 'Lord, I don’t know how to do this.' And so we pray to the Father for the Spirit, who brings Christ to us."
