Of all the taglines I've heard, "With great power comes great responsibility" is one of the most convicting - and in a manner that leads to action. When I think of how much power to influence I have at my disposal, it actually humbles and terrifies me, and I must fall to my knees and pray that I don't misuse this power. It's a common mistake to think that our actions have very little impact, leading us to act as though it doesn't matter what we do. In reality, even a person of low status (in any area of life) has the power to effect change in their social circle and beyond - through displaying the grace and truth of Christ through everyday living and through calling down the power of God through prayer.

Hey Beth, i'll definitely check out what you wrote. Thanks for the insights...and I agree, it's a pretty convicting/frightening thing to consider the 'power' we have.

If the link doesn't work, copy/paste the url and delete the end parenthesis. I think Jon Acuff's shameless plugging is rubbing off on me...
