Rethinking Incarnational Ministry
Justin Taylor provides the lecture of J. Todd Billings in which he talks about Incarnational Ministry and Union with Christ. Billings challenges the popular notion of incarnational ministry and proposes we think of relational/servant ministry arising from our union with Christ: "The act of God becoming incarnate is not a human act, it is a divine act - only something God can do. Rather than that being our pattern we should look to the humanity of Jesus Christ the servant." Worth the time to listen and reflect on.
