The Logic of the Mission of God

Every act of love, gratitude, and kindness; every work of art or music
inspired by the love of God and delight in the beauty of his creation;
every minute spent teaching a severely handicapped child to read or to
walk; every act of care and nurture, of comfort and support, for one’s
fellow human beings and for that matter one’s fellow nonhuman creatures;
and of course every prayer, all Spirit-led teaching, every deed that spreads the gospel, builds up the church, embraces and embodies holiness rather than corruption, and makes the name of Jesus honored in the world – all of this will find its way, through the resurrecting power of God, into the new creation that God will one day make. That is the logic of the mission of God.” N.T Wright (Surprised by Hope, p 208)
