“no longer the path that is too difficult”

Lentz, Bonhoeffer
Robert Lentz, Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Self-denial means knowing only Christ, and no longer oneself. It means seeing only Christ, who goes ahead of us, and no longer the path that is too difficult for us. Again, self-denial is saying only: He goes ahead of us; hold fast to him.”

Bonhoeffer, “Discipleship and the Cross.”
