Living in the paradoxical truths

The life of discipleship to Jesus is one of great paradox.

1. No matter what we have done or where we have been he accepts us, loves us and forgives us. There is no limit to the grace of God. We can never make him stop loving us. This is a fact and never changes. Lousy Christians are as loved by God as superheroes.

2. We are called to absolute self sacrificing devotion where our lives are laid down and we follow his will for our lives. We ‘deny ourselves take up our cross and follow him’. This is also a fact and never changes. He doesn’t have a soft option for those who only want a little ‘god in their lives’

Somewhere in those two truths is the life of discipleship.

Nothing we can do…

Everything we must do…
