Missional Musing - 11-15-2012
We therefore err if we limit our missional praxis to any portion of the Bible, any particular thread of Scripture, or any single ideas about what mission should be today. We need to recalibrate around the whole Council of God and rethink the whole Gospel, whole Church, whole World through the lens of the whole Bible, once again. But how do we live that out? All that Stott tells us is "of God" needs to be reviewed through the "Kingdom of God" (which is the realization of all that the Church of God is empowered to do through the Spirit of God, due to the completed work of the Christ of God, toward fulfillment of the Promises of God, to display the Character of God, for the redemption and restoration of the Creation of God.) That does kind of rule out placing limitations of how we understand the Mission of God.
