“Power comes in the application—in submission and obedience to God’s Word,” remarks Steven Furtick, lead pastor of Elevation Church. “I challenge those who have a depth of knowledge and insight to find something so simple, so painfully clear that kicks against their nature, and obey that. The Spirit wants to move in your life more than He wants to arrange facts. . . . Knowing God’s Word becomes a disadvantage when that knowledge becomes an obstacle to believing in Him in childlike faith. It’s important that we stay in that posture.”—Joe Bunting
The lives of Christ’s followers should mirror God’s work of redemption, emphasizes Christine Caine, author, speaker, and human rights activist. “In John 17, Jesus prayed, ‘Father, I do not ask that you take them out of the world.’ Our purpose is to be in the world and have a different value system, a different set of priorities and a different way of thinking. The Bible is a redemption story from beginning to end. Genesis to Revelation shows God coming and dwelling among men and redeeming us. . . . Now he’s working in these last days through the Holy Spirit in us, and every spiritual gift in Christ is made available so that we can reach the world.”—Jessi Strong
The modern church seems fragmented and divided. By some estimates, there are around 41,000 different Christian denominations and organizations. The numbers seem to clash with Paul’s description of the church as Christ’s body (Eph 1:22–23) and God’s temple (2:19–22) as he stresses that believers should be united in Christ. Can the modern church—with its thousands of separate denominations—really display the type of unity Paul writes about in Ephesians?—Miles Custis
