True North Pt 2
In America the Church is out of shape -- some would describe it as flabby in terms of our materialism and relative affluence, while others may describe us as anorexic, malnourished, underfed -- our limbs atrophied from lack of use. Both descriptions define the Church to some degree. But I no longer believe it’s a course of discipline that we lack -- or a special week of training. The way to begin getting our strength back is to enlist the power that is already available to us -- the power that is already IN us. We are renewed by the Holy Spirit who indwells those of us who believe.
