“One of my personal strategies for sticking with Jesus is to periodically remind myself of how lame Plan B is. Jesus is offering Life. Not life as maximized choice. But Life.
That is, Spirit-lead life, the life of the age to come, life in fellowship with Father, Son and Spirit, a life of proleptic participation in the new creation with the community of the forgiven and in mission in the world: the kind of life that is truly life, even when caring for a disabled child or wiping the saliva of the face of an ageing parent.”
