    Topics: Service


  • "But with Christ, we have access in a one-to-one relationship, for, as in the Old Testament, it was more one of worship and awe, a vertical relationship. The New Testament, on the other hand, we look across at a Jesus who looks familiar, horizontal. The combination is what makes the Cross."

    - Bono
    Topics: The Cross


  • "The point of the death of Christ is that Christ took on the sins of the world, so that what we put out did not come back to us, and that our sinful nature does not reap the obvious death. That's the point. It should keep us humbled... It's not our own good works that get us through the gates of Heaven."

    - Bono
    Topics: The Cross, Humility


  • "And yet, along comes this idea called Grace to upend all that "as you reap, so will you sow" stuff. Grace defies reason and logic. Love interrupts, if you like, the consequences of your actions, which in my case is very good news indeed, because I've done a lot of stupid stuff. I

And I believe in the poetic genius of a creator who would choose to express such unfathomable power as a child born in "straw poverty"; i.e., the story of Christ makes sense to me."

    - Bono
    Topics: Love

    - Bono
    Topics: Christmas


  • "What can I give back to God for the blessings he's poured out on me? I'll lift high the cup of salvation - a toast to God!"

    - Bono
    Topics: Blessings, Salvation
