what it means

“Christians are called to leave behind, in the tomb of Jesus Christ, all that belongs to the brokenness and incompleteness of the present world. It is time, in the power of the Spirit, to take up our proper role, as agents, heralds, and stewards of the new day that is dawning. That, quite simply, is what it means to be a Christian: to follow Jesus Christ into the new world, God’s new world, which he has thrown open before us.”
