Let’s be honest. As long as church consists of normal routines, and Christianity consists of nominal devotion with little risk, little sacrifice and little abandonment, then we can do this on our own. But what happens when we give ourselves to something that is far greater than what we can accomplish on our own? What happens when we dare to believe that God desires to use every one of our lives and every one of our churches to bring about kingdom advancement to the end of the earth? We will find ourselves dependent on his power and desperate for his grace as we devote ourselves to his purpose.
