Christian Quotes: Thomas Merton

Why did Jesus come to Earth in human form? The answers to that question remind me how much we are truly loved by God.

Why? So that He could empathize with us and become our true High Priest. So that He could teach mankind how to live in a way we could better understand. So that we could see God “in the flesh.” So that our hope in God would be renewed. The list goes on and on…

I hope you are catching a little of the blessings I feel this time of year. And if we want to, we can carry this feeling through the year, sharing it with others as we go.

I wish you all a comforting and joyful Christmas! Heather

“Into this world, this demented inn in which there is absolutely no room for him at all, Christ comes uninvited.”

Thomas Merton

“The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him,the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.”

John 1:9-13
