Dallas Willard says this “Great Inversion,” as he calls it, is the heart of the gospel of Jesus. Willard says this role reversal is inevitable because of the irresistible reality of God’s Kingdom as it breaks into this present age in which we live.

I’m glad that’s the case, otherwise I would not have been invited to join.
