I ran across a quote from Dallas Willard from the book, Renovation of the Heart, that I want to share with you this morning.
“The impotence of ‘systems’ is a main reason why Jesus did not send His students to start governments or even churches as know them today which always strongly convey some element of human system.
They were, instead, to establish beachheads of His person, Word, and Power in the midst of a failing humanity. The were to bring the Presence of the Kingdom and its King into every corner of human life simply by fully living in the Kingdom with Him.”
Perhaps we have made it more complicated than it needs to be.
