A Heart for God

With a heart for God, do not hate your brother but be reconciled. We who are forgiven should seek forgiveness. With a heart for God, do not lust but flee it, pursuing “righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart” (2 Tim. 2:22). For in Christ we have been saved from hearts of hate and lust and given hearts for God.

The Glory of Salt and Light

We were not redeemed to be sequestered to a monastic enclave. We were not redeemed to be undecipherable from the world around us. We were redeemed by God’s indelible grace to be salt and light. We are not salt and light for our glory but God’s glory, so “let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
