total CHURCH

From the chapter Discipleship and Training:


"We should be teaching one another the Bible as we are out walking, driving the car, or washing the dishes. People should learn the truth of justification not only in an exposition of Romans 5 but as they see us resting in Christ's finished work instead of anxiously trying to justify ourselves. They should understand the nature of Christian hope not only as they listen to a talk on Romans 8 but as they see us groaning in response to suffering as we wait for glory. They should understand the sovereignty of God not only from a sermon series on Isaiah but as they see us respond to trials with "pure joy" (James 1:2). We have found in our context that most learning and training takes place not through programmed teaching or training courses but in unplanned conversations--talking about life, talking about ministry, talking about problems."

Hey, I have an idea.

We should have a "quote-off," where we try to one-up each other with Total Church quotes. Eh?

I guess it's my turn. I'll post mine in a few days.
