Ed Stetzer on Being the Presence of Christ

I am grateful for Ed Stetzer and I appreciate his work at LifeWay Research. I recently heard him speak at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He was talking about church revitalization and said that 89% of the churches in the SBC are in need of revitalization based on criteria from the Leavell Center for Evangelism and Church Health.

Stetzer addressed churches that had made a comeback and identified some common traits. On a fundamental level each of the churches was biblical, spiritual, and missional. One aspect of the missional church that stood out to me was the emphasis on the Kingdom of God. Stetzer framed this as a call to - be the presence of Christ.

We should keep our eyes on the main thing and expend our passion on Kingdom concerns. The night is coming! Live as the presence of Christ in your world.
