Where do we stand?
I suppose many people if asked this question would think of politics. Or we would think of this or that topic.
Martin Luther in his stance on Justification and the nature of faith triumphed with the words, "here I stand I can do no other." The most important place we stand or fall is in our relation the the cross.
Jesus is the rock. All other ground is sinking sand.
If we truly believe this then we will make it the center of our lives. We succeed or fail on this point.
God stands waiting for all to enter who knock. He asks us to spread the good news of his gracious offer or reconciliation.
God is most glorified when we proclaim the justice of God seen in the gospel and free gift of grace flowing from the cross.
