So I am suppose to be reading this book as both a Sojourn College Community Group Leader and as a Veritas Community Church intern, i.e. two birds, one book…. yes, I throw my books at birds.
Anyway, I thought this exert in the first chapter was solid.
“If we want to see the Spirit of God at work, we must proclaim the word of God. We might even say that being word-centered is synonymous with being Spirit-centered. The difference is that we cannot control the Spirit. We cannot determine or even predict when and how he will work (John 3:8). Our role is to read, hear, proclaim, teach, and obey the word. The Spirit’s role is to do the work of God through that word. The Spirit’s role is to do the work of God through that word. Through the Spirit our words become the living word of God
92 Samuel 23:2). And so we center our lives and ministries on the word of God while praying that God’s Spirit will do the work of God.” (32)

About mjbutterworth

I love drinking/making coffee, making/listening to music, riding bicycles, and reading about theology. I also like blogs that talk about those things. Most of all, I love Jesus because his gospel has changed my life.
