“There’s a grammar to the gospel. The indicative always comes before the imperative. In the gospel, the way things are—statements of fact about who God is, about who Jesus is, about what God’s done for us through Jesus—always come first before the imperative, how we should respond. You’ve got to understand what God has already done before you can respond to that.” — Steve Rockwell
