Jesus’ sentences stand like quivering swords of flame because He did not come to bring peace but revolution.
The Gospel is a cutting-edge, rolling thunder, convulsive earthquake in the world of the human spirit.
In entering human history, God has shattered all previous conceptions of who God is.
The life He has planned for us is much more like the life He lived. (think about that!)
He was not poor that we may become rich.
He was not mocked that we may be honored.
He was not laughed at so that we could be praised.
We are not to fill up what is wanting in us in the suffering of Christ.
