Voice of the Day

Frederick Buechner - Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia-1“Repent and believe in the gospel, Jesus says. Turn around and believe that the good news that we are loved is gooder than we ever dared hope, and that to believe in that good news, to live out of it and toward it, to be in love with that good news, is of all glad things in this world the gladdest thing of all.”

~Frederick Buechner

from Secrets in the Dark: A Life in Sermons

It is the starting point for everything isn’t? That we are deeply and immeasurably loved unconditionally by the Father in Heaven is the genesis of every missional thought and action. Otherwise, we would find ourselves stuck back in the middle of a salvation that needs to prove it’s worth by works. And this would not be good. The challenge is to live in such a way that recognizes this great love often and responds to it with a life of praise, justice, mercy, and compassion.
