What does it mean that the soul meets Christ? The great Revelation of God turns into God's transaction with me. History becomes my history. "It was done for me." "Given for you, shed for you." The most important event of my life will be Jesus Christ. At the same time the individual is brought into the history of Revelation. God's creation is continued in him. That which takes place in the petty history of a man's soul receives a new significance, it becomes God's way of dealing with his child. The drama of the world takes hold of the individual soul. He finds that his own history means a choice between God and the Devil. Shall God create or shall the Devil destroy in him? God's struggle against evil, lethargy, and death is manifested throughout history. Every human being must take part in that grand and perilous fight between Life and Death, between God's revealing miracle and darkness.
