In our staff meetings, we have been discussing a book and I just read something from it that I had to share.
"We cannot have relationship with our christology-we can have a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our soteriology cannot save us from our sins-our Savior can.
Our ecclesiology does not make us one-the Lord of the Church does.
Our eschatology will not transform this flawed universe-Jesus the King of kings and Prince of Peace will do that.
And, no matter how much we love theology-it will never love us back.
Only God in Christ Jesus loves us, and that is why believing is a relationship."
-Scott McKnight, "The Jesus Creed"
