Renew: Engaging the World by the Power of the Spirit
Ethan Smith   -  

“A god is that to which we look for all good and where we resort for help in every time of need …. Whatever your heart clings to and confides in, that is really your God.”
Martin Luther

“In the midst of a world that does not know where it is going and often falls into melancholy and despair, the church expresses its joyful expectations: ‘I believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.’”
Herman Bavinck

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Jesus, Acts 1:18

“Jesus didn’t say, ‘Go, therefore and make disciples, all you extroverts, all you gifted evangelists, all you professional clergy, and Okay, all you Baptists. And the rest of you just hang out, sing some hymns, I’ll be back.’ Jesus calls every disciple, in every age, from every tribe to be his witnesses. And here’s what’s so interesting: He doesn’t say one word about our gifting.”
