Strive for His kingdom
The flesh and blood God reconciles you to God.
How do you read Scripture?
Your physical God reaches out His hand to touch your physical body to heal you by the forgiveness of sins.
We are sinners and deserve to be treated like sinners. But because of Christ, God justifies sinners.
Christ enters the Temple of your body by His Word to make you holy.
Help must come from outside of us. So we are completely dependent on the mercy of our Master.
The church on earth looks like it has failed. But Christ knows those who are His. She is His Bride made holy by His blood.
Because Jesus is compassionate, you will make it home.
Is our piety enough?
