FOR PEOPLE OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD, WHAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE?

LOVE 3

“For people of the kingdom, participants in the Triune fellowship, love and love alone is the bottom line. This is the only thing that gives value to anything we believe, say, or do. This is the reason the world exists. Whatever music we play, sermons we preach, churches we build, people we impress, powers we display, stances we take, doctrines we teach, things we achieve – if believers are not growing in their motivation and ability to ascribe unsurpassable worth to people who have no apparent worth, we are just wasting time. We are not making true disciples.”

– Gregory Boyd, Repenting of Religion: Turning from Judgment to the Love of God.
