Generosity in quotes

“When we realize what God has done, when we discover that Christ has bound himself to us so radically that nothing can separate us from him when we gratefully reciprocate by fastening our lives to his life, death, and resurrection in baptism, the Holy Spirit empowers us to consciously participate in the life of God.  Where Jesus goes, we go; when Christ suffers, we suffer; what God gives, we give.  Our lives are so bound up with Christ that the Holy Spirit gives us more of God’s love than we can fathom or hold…This is how God enters the world:  through people like us.”

Kenda Creasy Dean,  professor of youth, church, and culture at Princeton Theological Seminary, in Almost Christian
