Lent Reading: Quote of the Day 2

From Dietrich Bonhoeffer's book Meditations on the Cross, the chapter entitled "Back to the Cross" based on Matthew 17:1-9.

The message of the resurrection is there that we may obey the Lord Jesus in life. There is no abiding and enjoying the visible glory here. Whoever recognizes Jesus as God, must also immediately recognize him as the crucified human being, and should hear him, obey him.
How much of my faith is pure intellectual/philosophical, and how much do I actually translate into action?
