The indwelling Christ

Although great and profound outer changes can occur quite apart from any revelation from God, there is nothing more wonderful than the indwelling Christ. When he is present, streams of living water flow out, bringing life to people. This is something that transcends human goodness. What God directs is never destroyed, even when nations suffer ruin. Only where Christ’s love rules are human beings valued for who they are, and everything else–social institutions and customs–takes second place and even become quite unimportant.—Christoph Blumhardt in The Hidden Christ, page 53
