Another Lenten thought

“In any kind of conflict, from the fist fight to the labor dispute, from the family quarrel to the threat of international communism, the Christian sees the world and its wars from the viewpoint of the cross. ‘When we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of God’s Son’ (Romans 5:10). The Christian has no choice. If this was God’s pattern, and if the Lord’s strategy for dealing with his enemies was to love them and give himself for them, it must be ours as well.” – John Howard Yoder, Living the Disarmed Life
