Two central ideas shape my approach to Christianity.
1.The Christian life is cruciform, shaped by Jesus’ self-sacrifice on the cross.
2. The Christian life is a life of emptying ourselves, following Jesus’ example in Philippians 2.7: “Think about yourselves the same way Jesus did. He was equal to God, but he didn’t demand his rights. He emptied himself, and became a servant, obeying God’s plan by going to the cross.”
