This is the ultimate freedom, my friends, to live in a world filled with storms and suffering and know the peace and joy that comes in knowing Jesus Christ.
Our unity is rooted not in sameness, but in a mutual desire to be faithful to God’s purposes, made known most clearly in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Instead of a spirit of resignation, we are called to live as committed and devoted friends of Jesus who know how to walk through the shadow of suffering, who are not given to conflict or division, who seek fellowship, and walk the talk of Jesus with joy and grace.
