Defend the Defenseless because Jesus Bought us With His Blood

We are not God's children because we imitate God, rather we imitate God because we are His children. We do not "walk in love" so that God will love us. Rather, we walk in love because God has loved us. We do not "let our light shine" (upon the deeds of darkness) so that we'll be made "children of light". Rather, we let our light shine because we are children of light. There are ramifications of being united to Christ (if we are united to Him!) and they cannot be avoided. We do not defend the defenseless to be acceptable to Him, we defend the defenseless because the acceptance we've already gained through His death, allows us to do no less. from
