Thereís a bit of nobility in the worst of human beings because all are made in Godís image and that image can never be completely effaced or lost. Even the man who has decided to have nothing whatsoever to do with God isnít frozen in that state of mind. Deep in the roots of his being ó just because he is created in the Divine Image ó there is an ever-present tug toward his Maker.

It is the privilege of Christophers to help him become aware of this tremendous attraction. They can honestly say to anyone, with little danger of hurting his feelings: "Thereís a lot of good in you!" With a kind word or a friendly glance they can do much to inspire confidence. They never write anybody off!

No matter how desperate the case, no matter how ignoble the character, theirs is the unshakable conviction that there is always hope!

"By this shall all men know that you are my disciples,
if you have love one for another." (John 13:35)

O Lord, help us to see Thy image in each human being and to love him because he was made by Thee and for Thee.
