Redemption Quote #1

"The church is called not to just evangelism but to the discipleship of believers. The redemptive work of Christ which believers enjoy is the beginning of their restoration as full human beings. We are not, as my friend Paul Marshall says, apprentice angels. We are saved into our full humanity, not away from it. That means that our cultural lives, the way we institutionalize our engagement in a meaningful creation which God has placed us, are also implicated in the work of redemption. Our salvation is toward our fulfilled humanity and thus our discipleship must be a training in the contours of a fulfilled humanity."
