  • A Thought for Self-Examination on Communion Sunday
  • But if Jesus died for the sins of the world, then those sins committed after his death are just as responsible for putting him on a cross as the sins committed before. This truth makes it impossible to love Jesus and knowingly transgress the law of God. It’s like saying you love someone while you are twisting a knife in his back – the ultimate in mixed messages. Seeing the cause and effect between my present tense sin and Christ’s past tense death might mean I will have to do something about sinning beyond casually accepting God’s grace. – John Fischer, On a Hill Too Far Away, p. 38
