As human beings, we cannot walk through life on our own. We need rescue, healing, and forgiveness. In short, we need God. We need the good news, the news of the King who has come, making lasting change possible. This alone is our personal hope and the basis of our ministry to others.
The good news of the kingdom is not freedom from hardship, sufferring and loss. It is the news of a Redeemer who has come to rescue me from myself.
-Paul David Tripp, Instruments In The Hands Of The Redeemer, p.16
