Quote of the Day from CKB

Let me be practical about this. When I am oppressed by the burden of sin, what I
need is not the best available theology of forgiveness. What I need is forgiveness itself,
to be forgiven. When I am unable to see my way forward, to cope with the problems of
life and death, I do not need a great piece of moral theology, what I need is the power
of Christ and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. When I am struggling with sorrow and
suffering, anxiety and fear, what I need is not a theodicy, but someone who will show
me how to cast my cares on God. What we owe to one another is what we owe to the
world—the Gospel.— C.K. Barrett
