“Being a Christian is less about cautiously avoiding sin than about courageously and actively doing God’s will.”
(Eric Metaxas, paraphrasing some of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s views on Christianity)
Bonhoeffer knew something about courage. He stood against Hitler and the Nazi war machine in his native Germany. He died in a concentration camp, but left his prolific writings which have encouraged believers for almost eighty years.
“Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
