These days everybody wants to be on the right side of history. No one seems to care too much about being on the right side of the truth.
There are many roles to be occupied and parts to be played but there is only one script for the friends of Jesus—to know Christ.
We do not vindicate Jesus when we fight for him. He vindicates us when we suffer loss with him.
We read Scripture in the presence of the Risen Christ, and the Holy Spirit is the agent who teaches us, instructs us, and enables us to see the truths of God’s word.
All it takes to be in the world is to act as if Christ did not come, or did not make a difference to me.
The name of Jesus is an enormous power and an even greater stewardship.
