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.
We forget that God’s primary goal is not changing our situations or relationships so that we can be happy, but changing us through our situations and relationships so that we will be holy.
