“The same judgment in which God accuses and condemns us as sinners and gives us up to death, he pardons us and places us in a new life before him and with him.
— Karl Barth

“Christ died to save us, not from suffering, but from ourselves; not from injustice, far less from justice, but from being unjust. He died that we might live – but live as he lives, by dying as he died who died to himself that he might live unto God. If we do not die to ourselves, we cannot live to God, and he that does not live to God, is dead.” – George MacDonald
