We’re More Powerful Than We Recognize- Lisa Yebuah
Maybe the most unfortunate reality plaguing the church today is its inability to see itself rightly; we are a means of God’s grace to be at work in this world. And yet, because we often look to the world for our examples of power – which are not compelling at all – our tendency then is to overcorrect, take on a posture of weakness that’s not Christ-soaked, and ultimately downplay our ability to enact change through the life-giving source of the Spirit. But we’re more powerful than we realize!
The stories about the Tower of Babel and the day of Pentecost will give us glimpses of the holy mischief the church can get itself into.
