“Jesus is the dictionary in which we look up the meaning of words.”

christplaysFrom Eugene H. Peterson’s Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places:

Followers of Jesus regularly have to relearn the meaning of words corrupted by our culture and debased by our sin. Jesus is the dictionary in which we look up the meaning of words. When we look up the glory in Jesus we find — are we ever ready for this? — obscurity, rejection and humiliation, incomprehension and misapprehension, a sacrificial life and an obedient death: the bright presence of God backlighting what the world despises or ignores.

so what do you think?
