Speaking of: Live out loud

May 14, 2010 — Leave a comment

Our sense of real purpose in life, the values we hold, those things that really concern us and our energies will reveal themselves naturally in our everyday activities. Attitudes toward people, reactions to circumstances, that quiet peace and contentment which upholds us in the midst of all life’s pressures and crises will suggest the quality of our lives.

Paul Little

People are full of anguish and anxiety and fear, fear of the future and of war and of death. They are delivered up to the pain of a cruel disruption. They are desperate because they have lost their loved ones, or think they have lived in vain, or see the world degraded and nature violated and slowly plundered.

They are doubly crushed because they do not know that they are loved and accompanied and saved and reunited and promised a future of truth, righteousness, and light. Not to know this is the great tragedy of people today. Communicating the gospel is passing on the astonishing news that no matter what happens nothing is lost and we are loved.

Jacques Ellul

“You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD,
“and my servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe me
and understand that I am He.”

Isaiah 43:10
