Quote for the Week
"It had gone on for three years. Three years of patiently teaching and doing good with only misunderstanding and hostility in return. He wanted to say: 'I quit, I don't need this.' But instead he said: 'Not my will but yours be done.' A few hours later he hung on a cross, nails cutting into his limbs, lungs struggling for air, crowds spitting venom. He wanted to say: 'I quit. I'm coming down.' But instead he said: 'Father, forgive.' He kept going until he could cry, 'It is finished.'
"Jesus is the perfect person, the true image of God, the glory of the Father. And God's agenda for change is for us to become like Jesus."
Tim Chester, You Can Change (Nottingham: IVP, 2008), p. 17
