Humbly Confident in the Future

Posted: May 17, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship

“The new community of Jesus is an eschatological community which lives already in the new age he inaugurated. For justification is an eschatological event. It brings forward into the present the verdict which belongs to the last judgment. That is why the church is a community of hope, which looks with humble confidence into the future.”

— John Stott
