The church must preach the double-sided message of Christianity with boldness in the world, avoiding neither love nor judgment in its constant proclamation of the gospel. Yet the church’s priority must always be love and grace. As the people who drink constantly from the love of God as the result of union with Christ through faith in His atoning death and life-giving resurrection, Christians must mark themselves as a grace-filled, love-giving people. Christians must not simply receive the greatness of God’s love…but must imbibe it and present it to the world.
