A Living Hope
by T. Austin-Sparks
"It is the impact of Christ that matters. In those early days He could not be present without it being known; and that is the thing that you and I need; that is the secret of the church's power. It is the presence of Christ on the inside of you and me, and all of us as people together; this Mystery among the nations, which is Christ in you. You are among the nations, and the deepest, profoundest, most inexplicable thing is Christ in you, as you are among the nations, 'the hope of glory'. It is a question of hope."
