It is encouraging to hear a clear, concise call to the Christian life. This one is almost 600 years old, yet still fresh and filled with faith:
“Believe the Gospel, that is, believe the joyful news of divine grace through Jesus Christ. Cease from sin; manifest repentance for your life in the past; submit obediently to the Word and will of the Lord, and you will become companions, citizens, children, and heirs of the new and heavenly Jerusalem … Walk according to the Spirit and not according to the flesh. “
From The Complete Writings of Menno Simons (1496-1561) . Menno Simons was an Anabaptist religious leader. His followers became known as Mennonites.
