The Cruciform Life


If the gospel doesn’t change me, inside out, if it doesn’t transform me but if the Christian life means anything at all it finally has to get into the world of what we do between waking and sleeping into the realms of the routine ordinary speech habitual responses casual reactions if Jesus makes it into our daily behavior observers will begin to think there might be something to this after all and we ourselves are not going to be satisfied for long we’re just talking about ideas and truths that don’t filter into the ordinariness of our living.
