"Because we are afraid, we are always reacting. Instead of keeping to the agenda that we have already been assigned–the agenda that is “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” the agenda already been set by the resurrection–we are always playing defense. We are reacting to this group, these words, this news. And unfortunately, it is very rare that anything constructive can be said or done for the kingdom of Jesus out of a posture of defense."
Words of wisdom from my pastor. Sometimes the truth just smacks me in the face.
