Spiritual Rhythms of Life for Today - September 19

The plight of much of the Western church is that it has been highly influenced by its political, economic, and social context. Instead of always following culture, Christians need to take the lead and find biblical, creative, and spiritual ways to bring the truth and love of the gospel into culture. Redeeming our political, economic, and social relations is a crucial, even urgent task that requires our serious attention and our devoted time and energy. As far as I see, this can begin on a local scale and grow out from there. Change is possible – the status quo is death – we can make an effort to bring our communities and churches life, as we seek to apply God’s redeeming love, biblical truths, and a renewed worldview.
