Quotes for Thought, Part Two

Some of you may know that I recently posted a list of quotes that mean a lot to me.  I said that I would likely do the same again, and so we find ourselves here again.  These are a list of quotes about The Christ, The Gospel and God.  I pray, even as I type them, that God may allow your heart to be cut by these words as mine was.

“True Christianity, which is radically different from Western culture, and may not be found in many Christian Churches, renounces the advance of religion by violence” 
-John Piper

God himself was the chief Actor in the death of his Son, so that the main question is not, Which humans brought about the death of Jesus?  But, What did the death of Jesus bring about for humans---including Jews and Muslims and Buddhists and Hindus and nonreligious secularists---and people everywhere?  -John Piper

“God does not have a Mission for His Church in the world, God has a church for His mission in the world.  Mission was not created for the Church, the Church was created for God’s mission”  -Christopher Wright

“We are all called and empowered to be a part of God’s redemptive purpose, that all may enjoy His scandalous grace”  -Robert Greene

“The central message of our witness is Jesus; the birth, life, death, resurrection and reign of Jesus”  -Robert Greene

“If God were not just, there would be no demand for His Son to suffer and die.  And if God were not loving, there would be no willingness for His Son to suffer and die.  But God is both just and loving.  Therefore His love is willing to meet the demands of His justice”  -John Piper

“Therefore no sin is small, because it is not against a small Sovereign…The Creator of the universe is infinitely worthy of respect and admiration and loyalty.  Therefore, failure to love Him is not trivial—it is treason.”  - John Piper
