Extra nos

The Reformers emphasized that in times of doubt and fear one should not look inward at the uncertainty of one's own heart or despair at the darkness of one's own soul, but rather outside of ourselves- "extra nos-" to Christ.

I highly recommend Edward Gene Veith's  The Spirituality of the Cross, which ought to be subtitled, "Christianity 101."
