Scripture @ Sunrise 12.17.08

“For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.” -Mark 8:35

“The task of God’s people is to make known the good news of God’s renewed reign over the entirety of creation. Christ’s kingly authority extends over the whole world. God’s mission is equally comprehensive: to embody the good news that Jesus again rules over marriage and family, business and politics, art and athletics, leisure and scholarship, sex and technology. Since the gospel is a gospel of the kingdom, that mission is as wide as creation.”

– Michael Goheen and Albert M. Wolters, Creation Regained (Grand Rapids, Mi.: Eerdmans, 2005)
