fully living in every corner of human life

A helpful reminder for those of us who like to fret/debate/discuss which form of church is the right one:

This impotence of ‘systems’ is a main reason why Jesus did not send his students out to start governments or even churches as we know them today, which always strongly convey some elements of a human system. They were, instead, to establish beachheads of his person, word, and power in the midst of a failing and futile humanity. They were to bring the presence of the kingdom and its King into every corner of human life simply by fully living in the kingdom with him.” (emphasis mine) — Dallas Willard in Renovation of the Heart
