Bonhoeffer Quotes

Some quotes to ponder, from The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer:

Perhaps it would be just as well to ask ourselves whether we do not in fact often act as obstacles to Jesus and his Word.

The command of Jesus is hard, unutterably hard, for those who try to resist it. But for those who willingly submit, the yoke is easy, and the burden is light.

Only Jesus Christ, who bids us follow him, knows the journey’s end. But we do know that it will be a road of boundless mercy. Discipleship means joy.

Only he who believes is obedient, and only he who is obedient believes.

Grace and Peace
