The question for tonight” Do you live as if God is Dead?
In Life Together Dietrich Bonhoeffer tells how we relate to the Biblical story: We are torn out of our own existence and set down in the midst of the reality of when God was on earth. There God dealt with us, and there He still deals with us, our needs and our sins, in judgment and grace.
It is not that God is the spectator of our present life, howsoever important that is; but rather that we are the reverent listeners and participants in God’s action in the sacred story, the history of the Christ on earth. And only in so far as we are there, is God with us today also. (Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together [San Francisco: Harper, 1954], 53-54)
