The Sacramental Life

Quoting Pastor Todd Wilken from the listener Comment Line portion of the May 29th Issues, Etc. show:

...the shape of the Christian life is the shape of the Sacraments that Christ has given the Christian to live by. The word of absolution, the water of Baptism, the bread and wine, body and blood of the Lord’s Supper – this is the shape of the Christian life. And Christians who think that their life resides some place else than in what Christ gives in those Sacraments are looking for life in all the wrong places, and they’re not gonna find life. They’re gonna find busyness. They’re gonna find themselves. Worse yet they won’t find Christ.
