Patristic Quote for the Day

"Who loved me and gave Himself for me..."

Moreover, this language teaches that each individual justly owes as a great debt of gratitude to Christ, as if He had come for his sake alone, for He would not have grudged this His condescension though but for one, so that the measure of His love to each is as great as to the whole world. Truly the Sacrifice was offered for all mankind, and was sufficient to save all, but those who enjoy the blessing are the believing only.

- St. John Chrysostom, Commentary on Galatians 2:20
