Power

Q Talks


In this 17-minute session from the Q Talks, Andy Crouch calls listeners away from a distorted definition of power to one that can change culture for good. Andy believes that power, as described in the words of Jesus, is creative, not coercive. It calls us to restore God’s image in a world full of broken bearers.

Andy Crouch is the executive editor of Christianity Today and executive producer of This Is Our City, a documentary about Christians seeking the flourishing of their cities. He is the author of Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power and Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling.

Andy challenged us to trade in idolatry for the pursuit of Jesus. We exercise power best when we live surrendered to God. Think through your perception of power this week—do you have a positive or negative view of power? Consider Andy’s words and dare to say to God, “Let it be in us, according to Your Word.”
