A Community of Hope
In light of Pastor Brett's message last week on believing what God tells us, this is a great quote that points us to living out our faith as the church of Jesus Christ in light of the future hope that we have.
“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
