Salutary Rebuke…Great Encouragement…

To be reminded that the church is God’s creation and lives in the shadow of the cross, and is not to be judged strong or weak by the standards of the world, is both a salutary rebuke to triumphalism and a great encouragement to those who live in parts of the world where the most noticeable aspects of the church are her outward weakness and suffering.
