“Lord Jesus Christ, you who knew your fate beforehand and yet did not draw back, you who let yourself be born in poverty and lowliness and then, a sufferer, in poverty and lowliness carried the sin of the world until you, hated, forsaken, mocked, spat upon, finally even forsarken by God, bowed your head in that degrading death — but you lifted it again, you eternal victor, you who did not conquer your enemies in life but in death even conquered death! Forever victorious, you lifted your head again, you ascended one! Would that we might follow you!”

“Faith is against understanding; faith is on the other side of death. And when you died or died to yourself, to the world, then you also died to all immediacy in yourself, also to your understanding. It is when all confidence in yourself or in human support, and also in God in an immediate way, is extinct, when every probability is extinct, when it is as on a dark night — it is indeed death we are describing — then comes the life-giving Spirit and brings faith. This faith is stronger than the whole world; it has the power of eternity; it is the Spirit’s gift from God, it is your victory over the world in which you more than conquer.”

“Who is there that knows the happy instant, who has comprehended the delight of it and has not sensed that dread lest something might suddenly occur, the most insignificant thing, yet with power to disturb it all! Who has held in his hand the magic lamp and yet not felt that swooning of delight at the thought that one only needs to wish? Who has held in his hand that which beckons and has not learned to keep his wrist supple so as to let it go at once?”
