N.T. Wright on Freedom

Posted in NT Wright on April 4, 2011 by nmpreach

Last week, we had a brief discussion regarding freedom.  Today, I wanted to share some of N.T. Wright’s thoughts regarding freedom.  Let the discussion continue.

Christ purchased humans first and foremost for God, to be kings and priests to serve him.  Realize the full impact of this…It was on commission from the Father that the Son came down to the slave market that day.  He set us free to be – freemen?  Just one grade up from slaves?  Certainly not…we are to be kings, to share in God’s work of ruling the world.  And we are to be priests, representing the whole of creation to God, summing up its praises in our own.     – N.T.
