Weekly update (1 March) – Friends of God

It was a huge privilege to be in Dresden as the city marked 70 years since the bombings. It was both a sombre time of acknowledging deep hurt, but also a celebration of the most unlikely friendship that has sprung up between former enemies. This, as Archbishop Justin said, is miraculous. It’s a picture of the Gospel. Our selfishness and sin has made us enemies with God, but Jesus, the “friend of sinners” has enabled us to be reconciled with God once again (see Romans 5:8-10). We are friends of God, which is the greatest miracle of all.
