Leaning upon Christ

“Everything that a man leans upon but God—will be a dart which will certainly pierce his heart through and through. He who leans only upon Christ—lives the highest, choicest, safest and sweetest life.” – Thomas Brooks

HT: OFI

I’ve been thinking a lot about this quote since I first saw it a few days ago.  There’s so much truth and wisdom here!  (I love the first comment for it, so do click on the OFI link.)  Of course, the “safe” life spoken of here might just be the “safe” life of Paul, or Stephen – the life foretold for us by Christ.  But a safe life – one hidden with Christ in God – nonetheless.
