|Benjamin F. Butler|
"He is truly happy, whatever may be his temporal condition, who can call God as his Father in the full assurance of faith and hope. And amid all his trials, conflicts, and doubts, the feeblest Christian is still comparatively happy; because cheered by hope that the hour is coming when he shall be delivered from this 'body of sin and death' and in the vision of his Redeemer and felicity of angels.
Not only does the Bible inculcate, with sactions of the highest import, a system of the purest morality, but in the person and charachter of our Blessed Savior it exhibits a tangible illustration of that system.
In Him we have set before us--what, till the publication of the Gospel, the world had never seen--a model of feeling and action adapted to all times, places, and circumstances; and combining so much wisdom, benevolence, and holiness, that none can fathom its sublimity; and yet, presented in a form so simple, that even a child may be made to understand, and taught to love it."

Patriot's Prayer: Lord, let me be a light to people lost in darkness. Let me be one who can share your love in such a way that "even a child may be made to understand," and that they be taught to love You as I do.
Patriot's Promise: Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! ~1 John 3:1
