New creations ourselves,
we are to be about the work
of the new creation.
“New creation” serves as both our identity and our calling.
That means, in part, working proactively
for justice and equality and dignity in our world.
But for now, it also involves working reactively
to injustice and the immense suffering of inequality
and the debilitating pain of the loss of dignity in our world.
That’s a calling—an expectation—
with just two ways about it.
We are either obedient or disobedient.
