Handling Power

Dallas Willard said this in a lecture I heard on an mp3: His main point is that God makes incredible power available to us.

"[There is] no power shortage. But we have to be able to exercise it. We have to grow to the point to where we can be safely given the power of the Kingdom. And the growth is the issue. We have to grow into the kind of person who just routinely does the things that God would have us do."

As he's said many other places, "God wants you to become the kind of person whom he can trust to do whatever you want."

JB - don't know if you are still maintaining this blog, but I have really benefited from the availability of your wisdom in the past, so any future stuff is totally welcome.
