I’ve just completed the first draft of a new writing project I’m very excited about.
Sadly, I’ve been told by shadowy forces that I can’t tell you what I’m doing. Which is a lovely irony. On those occasions when I’m completely free to tell you what I’m doing, I generally don’t have a clue.
In any event, I don’t think it’s giving too much away to say that in researching [mysterious and exciting writing project], I came across this memorably taut expression of gospel truth by John Stott:
“The essence of sin is we human beings substituting ourselves for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting himself for us. We…put ourselves where only God deserves to be; God…puts himself where we deserve to be.” [The Cross of Christ, p.160]
