Quotation from the Letter to Diognetus--Our Privileged Work


What the soul does for the body is what Christians do for the world

In my estimation, all that we suffer in the present time is nothing in comparison with the glory, which is destined to be disclosed for us, for the whole creation is waiting with eagerness for the children of God to be revealed. It was not for its own purposes that creation had frustration imposed on it, but for the purposes of Him who imposed it--with the intention that the whole creation itself might be freed from its slavery to corruption and brought into the same glorious freedom as the children of God. Romans 8:18-21 (NJB)

A truly awesome responsibility, burden, and privilege. Praise God for what He assigns to us, for it is a sign of how greatly He values us and trusts us as His children to care for our brothers and sisters.
