Empowered to Touch

"...The same Spirit that rested on Him [Jesus} is now available to us -available to touch through us. The Spirit was not given to make us private mystics. The Spirit wasn't given to help us escape the world. The Spirit was given to empower us to become God's touch for His creation, right here, and right now. Paul's language that we are the body of Christ was not an elegant metaphor, but a statement of fact. When we touch the splendid shambles of the bodies around us, they receive a touch from Him."

- Jonathan Martin in Prototype: What Happens When You Discover That You Are More Like Jesus Than You Think, page 148
