Nothing worth doing can be achieved in a lifetime; therefore, we must be saved by hope. Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore, we must be saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore, we are saved by love.
2 Samuel 5:1-5,9-10 / Psalm 48 / Mark 6:1-13
The Reverend Matt Brown
