Living from a different center

January 31, 2013

The Spirit shifts our center.  We no longer live from the center of our needs, efforts or weaknesses–but from the heart of God–and God”s trustworthy love for us and the world. In Beyond Duty: A Passion for Christ, a Heart for Mission I propose:

“The church does not have a mission for God in the world.

The God of mission has the church in the world.

Or, to put it personally,

We don’t have our own mission for God in the world.

The God of mission has us in the world.

We are participants in God’s mission, not producers of our own.

We are always dependent and never directors.

We live in our own weakness and in God’s strength.”
