The Most Powerful Life: Contemplation & Action

We can’t merely talk about doing “great things for God,” for the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk, but of power (1 Cor. 4:20). “Righteousness” and “justice” are the same word in Scripture but have been artificially separated in English. Our righteous/just action in the world flows from our spiritual formation or lack thereof. How then shall we live? Come explore the life of power God calls us to.
