SEEING OURSELVES IN JESUS

"It is not that God's help and presence must still be proved in our life; rather God's presence and help have been demonstrated for us in the life of Jesus Christ.  It is in fact more important for us to know what God did to Israel, in God's Son, Jesus Christ, thjan to discover what God intends for us today.  The fact that Jesus Christ died is more important than the fact that I will die.  And the fact that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead is the sole ground of my hope that I, too, will be raised on the day of judgment.  Our SALVATION is "from outside ourselves."  I find SALVATION not in my life story, but only the story of Jesus Christ.  Only those who allow themselves to be found in Jesus Christ---in the incarnation, cross and resurrection---are with God and God with them."  Dietrich Bonehoeffer's LIFE TOGETHER, General Editor, Wayne Whitson Flloyd Jr. Minneapolis, MN: FORTRESS PRESS, 1996, p. 62.
