A Quote

"Knowing that you are living between the already and the not yet tells you where you are located in God's story of redemption...Already God has given us his Word as our guide. Already he has sent his Son to live, die and rise again for our salvation. Already he has given us his Spirit to live within us. But the world has not yet been restored. Sin has not yet been completely eradicated. We have not yet been formed in the perfect likeness of Jesus. Suffering, sadness, and death are not yet no more. It is hard to live in the middle, but that is exactly where we live. We live in a world that is still sadly and terribly broken."
-Paul David Tripp
