John 1:27 KJV

He it is, who is coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not unworthy to unloose.

“A real Christian is an odd number, anyway. He feel supreme love for one whom he has never seen, talks familiarly every day to someone he cannot see, expects to go to heaven on the virtue of another, empties himself in order to be full, admits he is wrong so he can be declared right, goes down in order to get up, strongest when he is weakest, richest when his is poor-est and happiest when he feels the worse. He dies so he can live, forsakes in order to have, gives away so he can keep, sees the invisible, hears the inaudible and knows that which passes knowledge.”
