Irvine: the characteristics of the Kingdom
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.
—Romans 14:17-18 (NIV)
When Christians join together to accomplish certain things, one may expect the organizations they form to reflect the characteristics of the Kingdom, but that will only happen as a consequence of the way people live and relate to each other in Christ. It will not necessarily follow from structures, policies, or documents.
... Graeme Irvine, former president, World Vision International, in a private communication from World Vision
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, Your Spirit is the organizing principle of Your church.
