Yesterday's quote

We must let ourselves be pierced by the eternal words of the Sermon on the Mount, and hold on to the faith that God is leading us. Faithfulness is everything. By us, the work; by him, the achievement. He remains Lord of the world. His is the kingdom and the power and the glory.

Here things do not proceed as the evangelicals say: “Come here, poor soul; be saved and receive forgiveness of your sins.” This is included, of course, but it is not the main thing. The main thing is that the kingdom of God is at hand. The kingdom of God descending from heaven is pressing to come. Without this, there is no proclamation; without this there is no service of the Word; without it there is no apostleship, no discipleship, no pupils in the school of Jesus Christ.

The final kingdom is completely realized in the future and also in the present. Where there is true faith, there is the true work of his Spirit and his community. And therefore the future cannot be cut off from the present with a knife; rather, where the Holy Spirit is, there is the power of the future kingdom of peace, justice, love, and brotherliness. Thus we believe in the brotherhood of the church of Jesus Christ.
