Highest Joy – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

To go one’s way under the sign of the cross is not misery and desperation, but peace and refreshment for the soul, it is the highest joy. ¬†Then we do not walk under our self-made laws and burdens, but under the yoke of him who knows us and who walks under the yoke with us. ¬†Under his yoke we are certain of his nearness and communion.

From: Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship
