Bernard: His gifts

For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
—1 Corinthians 15:21 (NIV)

By his first work He gave me to myself; and by the next He gave Himself to me. And when He gave Himself, He gave me back myself that I had lost.
... Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153), On Loving God, CCEL, ch. 5 (see the book)
See also 1 Cor. 15:21-22; Gen. 3:15; Eph. 2:8-9; 1 Tim. 2:3-4; 2 Tim. 1:8-10

Quiet time reflection:
Lord, You have finished Your work.
See yesterday
