“For all of its joy and celebration and for all of its gifts of life and grace, the Kingdom of God is a kingdom of sacrifice…

Jesus by his bleeding and broken body on the cross, not only gave the kingdom of God its life and hope, but its paradigm for living as well.  The history-changing death on the cross is also the life-changing call of Christ to everyone who would follow Him.  And as it did on the cross, that willingness to die will also result in life.  This kingdom is a kingdom of the cross and everyone who celebrates that sacrifice is called to drag a cross along with them every step of the way.”

Paul Tripp
