The Cooperation Imperative

November 1, 2020


The challenge for churches today is to be solid at the center and soft at the edges. We must be solidly devoted to the worship of the One Triune God: Creator, Christ, and Holy Spirit. At the same time, we must be soft at the edges, willing to collaborate with all people to serve a world in need. When we are solid at the center and soft at the edges, we are in a good position to cooperate with God and the people around us, living “a life worthy of God” (v. 12). Cooperation with God. Cooperation with each other. Both are imperative.
