Mooneyham: statistics for eternity only

Wednesday, November 27, 2019
    “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
    —Luke 4:18-19 (NIV)
    A gospel which does not express itself to the physical needs of man is a gospel not worthy of the name... Man is a whole person, with body and soul. Some evangelicals act as if people are disembodied souls, statistics for eternity only.
    ... Stan Mooneyham (1926-1991), former president, World Vision US, in a private communication from World Vision
    See also Luke 4:18-19; Isa. 61:1-3; Matt. 14:14-21; 15:32-38; Luke 11:39-41; 14:12-14; Rom. 12:13-16; Heb. 13:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have provided salvation for the whole man.
