Jesus went through the baptism of blood in His crucifixion. Following Him, the Church suffered martyrdom and death. This testifies to surrender in total sacrifice, like that of a burnt offering upon the altar fire.- Eberhard Arnold

“Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matt. 5:48). There is no other perfection, only that of love. So be aware of the things that thwart this love: property and worry! Wherever possessions are heaped up while elsewhere people go hungry and cold, there is no love. So gather no wealth for yourself. Do not worry. Worriers build life on wealth just as much as the wealthy. Look at the birds and flowers, and believe in the loving God, the Father who provides everything.

The mighty spirit of the divine light of heaven appears, like the sun, to all men, as the life-giving and life-sustaining power of universal fire. In the light and unity of Jesus Christ, God’s heart of glowing, flaming love has achieved the fulfillment of His eternal will.- Eberhard Arnold
The peace of God brings the strength of the life of God. It brings the power of His love. It consists of active service. It lives in deed. To the first call, “Lay down your arms!” belongs the second, “Take up your tools!”- Eberhard Arnold
