God's faithfulness unto death is in search of our faithfulness.
The word of God is very important in our private life. Such a supremacy of the word of God does not apply only to bloody martyrdom. God's message, which stakes his life on the covenant with us, is a message for everyday life: in the little things, in the patience of faith every day, is realized the way of faithfulness.
And so, fixing our eyes on the blood of Christ, we convert ourselves always more and more to his love.
-- Joseph Ratzinger, Journey to Easter, pg 69
