From “Life as a Vapor“
God’s will for us is not paralyzing frustration because of imperfection. His will is liberating courage because of the certainty of our future in him. The ‘Not Yet’ makes us humble and vigilant. And sometimes the road seems long. But the ‘Already’ makes us confident and bold, and reminds us that the road is short. Jesus walked it. And in Him, we are already home.
While we live, this is our calling: brokenhearted boldness. Contrite confidence. The image of Christ on earth: the Lion and the Lamb.
