Wise and challenging words from Craig Bartholomew and Michael Goheen in “The Drama of Scripture”. Does my life witness to the restoring power of God?
When we grasp that the salvation of the kingdom restores the creation, and all of it, we see that witness to God’s kingdom is as wide as creation. Witness will mean embodying God’s renewing power in politics and citizenship, economics and business, education and scholarship, family and neighborhood, media and art, leisure and play. It is not just that we carry out evangelism in these areas of life. Again, that is important but not enough. It means that the way we live as citizens, consumers, students, husbands, mothers and friends witnesses to the restoring power of God.
