Ministry, Service, and Power

September 30, 2012  |  Joe Boot
The humanist vision of the future is to bring rebirth by controlling people; the biblical vision is that the powerful work of the Holy Spirit will transform people. When we try to change people by our own power we end up sinfully dominating and controlling others. We are called to serve, not change, others. We cannot make a new creation out of anyone; only God can. In seeking the kingdom and righteousness of God, we seek God's purposes instead of instant personal satisfaction. We exercise a power and authority from beyond history, for the good of future generations.

Our sphere as the church has largely been that of a child; we've retreated from one area of life to another, leaving law, politics, education, etc. to the influence of godless people. Toronto is God's city because all authority in heaven and earth belongs to Christ
