Christ Lives In Us
by Caryll Houselander.

It was not into the Garden of Eden that Christ was born, not into a smooth, happy world. And when he is born again, in life after life, in person after person, it is always to live through the same things as he did the first time: fear, poverty, exile, work, publicity, temptation, pain, betrayal, and crucifixion.

He intends to overcome all this in each person’s life, not by doing away with it, but by transforming it, and to overcome death itself, by his own death.

Adapted from The Reed of God, (1944), p. 70, Sheed & Ward
