Not by Might or Power

Today’s quote ties into this coming Sunday’s sermon:

” … now may be a good time to remind ourselves that ours is a kingdom that grows not by might or power but by the Spirit, whose presence is identified by love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” — Rachel Held Evans [1]
