Do We Really Need Another Kick in the Pants?

Page 2 of 2

Instead of pulling out the whip and trying to use guilt to move people from lukewarm living to wild obedience, we should offer people an opportunity for the Spirit to heal them from the inside out so love can freely flow out of them. I'm not interested anymore in getting people involved for the sake of involvement. I'm fighting for deep transformation, and that requires a fresh encounter with God's great news of radical love.
