Do we believe that the Holy Spirit will be increasingly poured out over the church? Do we believe that Jesus comes into our midst, that he opens his heart to us so that we may live as he did and have an influence in society as he did? Do we dare to carry out the task as his church in his coming kingdom, to be a corrective within society through the grace of the indwelling Christ? Do we dare to live a life of love in the midst of the world, giving up all privilege and even the right to our possessions? Are we ready, completely defenseless, to follow Jesus?
~Eberhard Arnold (July 26, 1883 – November 22, 1935). Founder of the Bruderhof communities.
