Lesson from the Mystics

I am currently leading my church history students through a study on the Christian Mystics. I find so much inspiration in the lives of people like Thomas a Kempis, Julian of Norwich, Meister Eckhart, St John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila. I would love to share some insights with you, from these humble Christians. Hopefully I will get to include a quote from each of them, over the next few days. May you be inspired by these words from St John of Cross today:

“In the evening of life, we will be judged on love alone.”

In tribulation immediately draw near to God with confidence, and you will receive strength, enlightenment, and instruction.

Living in Grace,
