Discovering a Dynamic Balance
Updated: Jul 9, 2019
If the people of God are no different from the world out there then something seriously wrong, however, if God’s people separate themselves from the world and live a ghetto kind of existence, there is also something incredibly wrong. We are called to be in the world without being of the world. Now that is a challenge! The reality is that God’s people have rarely found this challenge easy, and the tendency has been to swing from one polarity to the other without finding a dynamic balance. We will only discover this balance in organic life-giving faith communities that are missionally focused beyond themselves. Such communities are not easy to find and very costly to develop for they demand and require a radical restructuring of one's lifestyle and life commitments.
