'Our apathy toward the mission of God is not beacuse of a lack of knowing what to do. It is our blindeess to his glory and grace that keeps us satisfied with nominal Christianity. If you want to light a fire under your church for mission, don't simply trot out your goals; lift up Jesus. When we see him in his power and are overcome by his love, we are joyfully compelled to respond to his call to make disciples. We are energized to reach the lost and help the weak. We are inspired to worship and to call the lost to his feet.'
