To Live, Act and Be the People of God

Les Henson

Sometimes there is a gap between what we say that we believe and the way we live. When this happens, we inevitably create a problem for those who are not-yet-followers of Jesus. Nietzsche recognised this reality when he wrote, “They would have to sing better songs to make me believe in their Redeemer: his disciples would have to look more redeemed!” As the people of God, we need to stop professing to be what we are not and start becoming who we are called to be. Only then will the world begin to take us seriously. As the people of God, we are called to live and act like: the body of Christ; the temple of the Holy Spirit; and God’s servant people in and for the world. Eugene Peterson prays, “O God, when my faith gets overladen with dust, blow it clean with the wind of your Spirit. When my habits of obedience get stiff and rusty, anoint them with the oil of your Spirit, Restore the enthusiasm of my first love for you.”
