Forde Quote

I do love myself some Gehard Forde…

God does not come to us because we are free and responsible.  He comes all the way to us because we are not and he intends to make us so.  He comes to set us free and to give us that destiny which he himself has planned for us as his creatures.  He comes to set us free form our bondage, our illusions, dreams, and fictions, our enslavement to our own ideals, to the law.  He comes to give us the freedom to live, to bring forth life out of death.”

Gerhard Forde “Justification by Faith: A Matter of Death and Life
