Imagine: A New Day

In his book, Simply Good News, NT Wright defines Christian spirituality:

Christian spirituality — an awareness of the loving and guiding presence of God, sorrow for sin and gratitude for forgiveness, the possibility and challenge of prayer, a love for God and for our neighbors, the desire for holiness and the hard moral work it requires, the gradual or sudden emergence of particular vocations, a lively hope for God’s eventual new creation — is generated by the good news of what HAS happened in the past and what WILL happen in the future. All this and much, much more is what is meant by the good news in the present.

It’s a new day. It’s resurrection. It’s the Kingdom. It’s time to live it.
