Jesus died on the cross to take away our sin, give us new life, and become our king. We do everything by the power of the cross.
Jesus lives in perfect fellowship with the Father and Holy Spirit. Like the Trinity, we do everything in the context of community.
Jesus’ mission is to build a growing kingdom of grace and love on earth. We do everything in light of his redemptive mission.
“The degree to which you understand the love and victory of Jesus is the degree to which you will be able to endure suffering well.”
“As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down you cannot see something that is above you.”
“We walk into the future in God-glorifying confidence, not because the future is known to us but because it is known to God. And that’s all we need to know. Worry about the future is not simply a character tic, it is the sin of unbelief, an indication that our hearts are not resting in the promises of God.”
