1. We assert, we herald, the truth about God becoming King of the world in and through Jesus of Nazareth alone. It is our public announcement.
  2. Gretchen and Katie talk about what happens when we focus on our pietism in ways that often hurt our neighbors. How does this happen?
  3. The reason that God’s commandments are not burdensome is that Jesus has fulfilled them.
  4. The love mentioned in 1 John 4:15-21 fourteen times (!) is a love that needs no apology but is determined at all times to sacrifice for the other.
  5. Faith is like a horse with blinders because it only beholds God’s promise. It is obsessed with what God has already said.
  6. Christian mercy should not seek its own. It must be round, and open its eyes and look at all alike, friend and foe, as our heavenly Father does.
  7. I trust that because of the gospel, God will continue to mend what I, in my sin, continue to break.
  8. In the Church, the cry is, “He loves,” and it is that message which transforms our worldviews from taking to giving, from radical individualism to trans-demographic inclusivism, from selfishness to selflessness, from “tolerate my rights” to “loving rightly together.”
  9. Faith should later again flow forth from our heart’s depths to our neighbor freely and unhindered in good works; not that we wish to rest our salvation in them; for God will not have that, but wishes the conscience to rest in himself alone.
  10. The goal of language in the mouth of a Christian isn’t to hold power for ourselves but to give it.
