Quote for the Week
"For Paul, death and life, weakness and strength, suffering and glory, wisdom and folly, sorrow and joy are all interwoven in the remarkable event of the cross. Pual's understanding of both the mission of Jesus Christ and Christian existence itself is dominated by such cross centred themes of life in death and strength in weakness. The full force of Paul's insights is missed if we interpret him as teaching that we can have life despite death and strength despite weakness: for Paul, the remarkable meaning of the enigma of the cross is that life comes through death and strength through weakness. The enigma of the cross symbolises the remarkable and paradoxical way in which God works out the salvation of thse he loves – an enigma which is supremely demonstrated in the crucified and risen Christ, but which bears direct relevance to Paul's understanding of Christian existence."
