And so the Word had breath, and wrought
  With human hands the creed of creeds
    In loveliness of perfect deeds,
      More strong than all poetic thoughts;
        Which he may read that binds the sheaf,
          Or builds the house, or digs the grave,
            And those wild eyes that watch the waves
              In roarings round the coral reef.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam (XXXVI)

Christ's method is divine. His words have the charm of antiquity with the freshness of yesterday; the simplicity of a child with the wisdom of a God; the softness of kisses from the lip of love, and the force of the lightning rending the tower. His parables are like groups of matchless statuary; His prayers like an organ peal floating round the world and down the ages, echoed by the mountain peaks and plains into rich and varied melody, in which all devout hearts find their noblest feelings at once expressed, sustained, refined. His truths are self-evidencing. They fall into the soul as seed into the ground, to rest and germinate. He speaks, and all nature and life become vocal with theology.
      - Edward Thomson

Are we proud and passionate, malicious and revengeful? Is this to be like-minded with Christ, who was meek and lowly?
      - John Tillotson

Christ was placed midmost in the world's history; and in that central position He towers like some vast mountain to heaven--the farther slope stretching backward toward the creation, the hither slope toward the consummation of all things. The ages before look to Him with prophetic gaze; the ages since behold Him by historic faith; by both He is seen in common as the brightness of the Father's glory, and the unspeakable gift of God to the race.
      - Unknown

How easily and contentedly we speak of Jesus Christ as our example. Do we realize what it means? If we did, it would revolutionize our life. Do we begin to know our Bible as He did? Do we begin to pray as He did? How thoughtful He was for others, how patient toward dullness, how quiet under insult! Think of what it meant for Him to take a basin and towel like a slave and wash the disciples' feet! Do we stoop to serve? Can anyone say of us, as was said of Him, that we go about "doing good"? Think of His words, servants of His, "I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you."
  "Christlike is a word often on our lips. Do not speak it too lightly. It is the heart of God's predestination. It is our high calling.
      - Unknown

Those who have minutely studied the character of the Saviour will find it difficult to determine whether there is most to admire or to imitate in it--there is so much of both.
      - Unknown

His love at once and dread instruct our thought;
  As man He suffer'd and as God He taught.
      - Edmund Waller, Of Divine Love
         (canto III, l. 41)

Philosophical argument, especially that drawn from the vastness of the universe, in comparison with the insignificance of this globe, has sometimes shaken my reason for the faith that is in me; but my heart has always assured and reassured me that the gospel of Jesus Christ must be a divine reality. The Sermon on the Mount cannot merely be a human production. This belief enters into the very depth of my consciences.
      - Daniel Webster
