Thoughts of the day: Desire of Ages

None have fallen so low, none are so vile, but that they can find deliverance in Christ. The Desire of Ages, p. 258.

The sincere, contrite soul is precious in the sight of God. He places His own signet upon men, not by their rank, not by their wealth, not by their intellectual greatness, but by their oneness with Christ. The Lord of glory is satisfied with those who are meek and lowly in heart. “Thou hast also given me,” said David, “the shield of Thy salvation: . . . and Thy gentleness”–as an element in the human character–“hath made me great.” Psalm 18:35. Desire of Ages, p. 437
