Our True Self Is Found In Christ

“There is no deep knowing of God without a deep knowing of self and no deep knowing of self without a deep knowing of God.” – John Calvin.

Thomas a Kempis said “a humble self-knowledge is a surer way to God than a search after deep learning.”

Augustine prayed “Grant, Lord, that I may know myself that I may know Thee.”

Thomas Merton wrote “There is only one problem on which all my experience, my peace, and my happiness depend: to discover myself in discovering God. If I find Him I find myself and if I find my true self, I will find Him.”

OUR TRUE SELF IS FOUND IN CHRIST!

“You are the body of Christ and each one of you is a part of it.” – 1 Cor. 12:27

“For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” – Gal. 3:27-28
