"'Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friend,' has nothing to do with Christianity; an atheist will do this, or a blackguard, or a Christian; there is nothing divine about it, it is the great stuff that human nature is made of. The love of God is manifested in that He laid down His life for His enemies, something no man can do."

Oswald Chambers, The Shadow of An Agony

On Being a Christian

On Our Need for Redemption

"If you have had no tension in your life, never been screwed up by problems, your morality well within your own grasp, and someone tells you God so loved you that he gave his Son to die for you, nothing but good manners will keep you from being amused."

(Oswald Chambers, The Shadow of An Agony)
