Firstfruits and Longing

A healthy balance is necessary in the Christian life, in which our joy at the many blessings we already possess should be set beside our frustration at our failures and our intense yearning for that day when we will fail no more – when “we shall be like him.”

Moo, The Epistle to the Romans, p. 521.
