Christian discipleship is a calling to accept the dichotomies of our time.
While we have an obligation to represent the heart and character of God, we must also endure the darkness and evil of this present age.
As partners for the cause of Jesus Christ, we have a mandate to share God’s gift of grace in a hostile world.
We are called to show the love, healing, unity, and reconciliation of the Lord Jesus Christ, even as we confront the deception, persecution, and hardships of the world in which we live.
May the grace which we have received from God himself not be in vain.
Instead, may we be committed to lives which reveal God’s glory in this present world.
