For our sake Christ offered Himself to the Father upon the altar for the cross. He now looks down from heaven on our actions and secret thoughts, and one day He will give each of us the reward his deeds deserve. It must therefore be our endeavor to destroy the right of sin and death, and by nurturing faith and uprightness of life, to build up the Church of Christ into a holy temple of the Lord.
