If we are to grow up …

“If we are to grow up – His way, we will walk the way of humility and learn to live in obedience to the Lord and in a unified, love relationship with His Body. But if we were to stop here, there would be no contact with the “outside” world. The Christian community could go on living and loving, isolating itself from interchange with the secular world. But the Lord is not calling us into an “exclusive community.” He is calling us to let the world know, through example and word, that He is alive and powerful in our tume.”

-from p.57 of “A Prophet’s Heart” by Charles Brown.
