There is little chance the world will see in us ever again the glory of a God who could transform people to transform the world. For, see? The world has already been transformed. “Love” and “freedom” are constant twitters, warped and misshapen echoes of a long dead Jesus. And, see? In those echoes the world is transforming still, and they who might transform it back again can only be seen as holding onto an outdated tyranny. Who will show the watching world that there is faithfulness? Who will prove to a jaded generation that love is possible? Who if not we who act out our little christs will say again that Christ has come and the faithfulness of self-sacrificial love is reality?
