Scripture at Sunrise 6.29.2011

“…The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” -2 Corinthians 5:17

“Salvation is not just ‘fire insurance’ or ‘sin management.’ The gospel promises far more than going to heaven when you die. It is an all-encompassing pledge from God for the total renewal of creation. It involves the resurrection of our bodies and the liberation of the whole creation from  its bondage to sin and death. What insurance plan, global market, or government agency can claim this kind of authority over life and death? When he returns, Jesus will judge every person and nation and consummate his kingdom in everlasting righteousness and peace. We cannot limit salvation to our private world of the soul; the whole cosmos was created by the Father, in the Son, through the Spirit, and it is upheld and finally redeemed in the same way.” -Michael Horton, via Of First Importance
