I love this quote from H.H. Pope Shenouda III: "One should then meet with God within oneself, not outside, for many seek Him here or there while He is within them and they are not aware."
At times I want to write this quote down and give it to people that I know, but I wonder, would it be to soon to tell someone this if they are not baptized? Does God dwell in the hearts of all people even before baptism? So, even though someone is not baptized yet, could these quotes about the Lord being within us still apply to them, or should they be told with the quotes, "once you are baptized."

You can certainly share this inspiring beautiful quote with others, but unless you preface it in some way, unbelievers may assume that faith in God and acceptance of the holy sacraments are unimportant to salvation.
