Why I preach “Christ” and not justice, love, peace and simplicity.

Sheridan Voysey posted up a quote from the Mennonite preacher Myron Augsburger on Face Book.

I believe in justice, but I am not a preacher of the gospel of justice, but the Gospel of Christ who calls us to justice.

I believe in love, but I am not a preacher of the gospel of love, but the Gospel of Christ who calls us to love.

I am committed to peace, but I am not a preacher of the gospel of peace, but the Gospel of Christ who calls us to peace.

I believe in the value of the simple life, but I am not the preacher of the simple life, but of the Gospel of Christ that calls us to the simple life

Great words. There is a subtle difference between preaching grace and law. The more Grace is revealed, the more love is practised. The more love is practised, there will be a greater level of justice. True justice leads to a peaceful existence….simple really.
