Renewed by God’s Great Faithfulness
Rev. Hardy H. Kim

God’s expectation (torah) will be in our hearts. Not only will we know what God wants and intends, but we will want to be obedient. This is the end of the restless resistance and self-sufficiency we know so well. Now there will be glad solidarity that comes in trust. This is in contrast to our usual way with laws, rules, and expectations that grate on us and generate hostility. Think what it would be like to be in such a relation of trust that there was no occasion for hostility.
—Walter Brueggemann, The Gift of a New Chance
