L essons to
We cannot begin a conversation about justice anywhere but at the cross of Jesus.
We have some pretty big ideas of how our lives should go. We feel pretty strongly about what we don’t want to happen, and we’re perfectly willing to spend our entire lives fretting and fussing and not trusting that—whatever it is—God is for us.
"He created us in His very own image, He saw our sin and loved us so much He made a way for us to be with Him again. Let’s keep our eyes on the Lord and trust Him to care for us as He’s already shown Himself good to do."

God’s kingdom is eternal.
God’s kingdom is fundamentally important to the lives of everyone on the planet.
God is building his kingdom, and while he doesn’t need us, he invites us to participate.
"To pray is to walk in the full light of God, and to say simply, without holding back, I am human and you are God"
— Philip Yancey
"Saltiness and brightness are not qualities the salt and light determine about themselves. They are qualities determined by their maker. Their purpose is placed within them; it’s not something they muster up by trying harder. The art of living and loving in a way that stands out is simply a matter of being who God created us to be. The light we shine should be His light. The flavor we add should taste distinctly of the Gospel as He taught it."
