Part 1 of 2 – Oh how it’s been so long. I guess we are quarantined so this happened naturally. We visit a few saucy Coronavirus takes from Twitter, hear about Luke’s time at Oxford, and dive into some of the material he studied abroad. Be on the look out for part 2!
“Moreover it has been explained to you that our Lord generously offer himself to us in his Son Jesus Christ, promising us through him all happiness in place of our misery, all fulness in place of our poverty, and opening up to (in him) all his heavenly treasures and riches, so that our faith may wholly look to his precious Son, our expectation be wholly directed to him, and our hope rest entirely in him.”

“This is the question of Romans 8: ‘Is the Gospel of Jesus Christ really strong enough to hold me, to keep me, right to the very end?'”

“The Law enslaves me. The Law kills me because the law is a mirror of my sin, and it drives me to the cross. It drives me to grace. That is what Paul is talking about here.”
“The good man, though a slave, is free; the wicked, though he reins, is a slave, and not the slave of a single man, but – what is worse – the slave of as many masters as he has vices.”
St. Augustine of Hippo
“In human affairs a representative is not a substitute. Whereas a substitute takes our place, a representative acts on our behalf, and so makes us present where we cannot personally be. But Christ is both. He always has represented and always shall represent his people before the face of God, the throne of grace and the judgment seat. He stands for us, and we are present in him. This means we are chosen in him, accepted in him, righteous in him, glorious in him. Whatever he is before God, he is for us. And so we are complete in him.”
