All things "In Christ"

Spiritual love...

will find full fellowship... in the Christ who alone binds us together. Thus this spiritual love will speak to Christ about a brother more than to a brother about Christ. It knows that the most direct way to others is always through prayer to Christ and that love of others is wholly dependent upon the truth in Christ. It is out of this love that John the disciple speaks. "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth" (3 Jn 4).
-Bonhoeffer

A good reminder: For us, all things must be done in Christ; we must take the utmost joy in walking in Christ, and seeing that others walk in Christ. Christ is everything: God and man, the Creator and creation united. He sums up all in himself. If we have him, we have all things. "All things are yours, you are Christ's, and Christ is God's."
