God’s Plan For His Church

“God has called His Church into existence to be a Body so filled with His presence, so luminous with His glory, so moved by His goodness and love, and so empowered by His Spirit, that the peoples of the world will be eager to learn from the Church how they, too, might become part of such an admirable and praiseworthy endeavor (cf. Micah 4:1-8). God intends to make His Church an object of the world’s praise. And to do this, He is placing people on the walls, so that they can see the world as it exists without, and the community of faith as it struggles within; and so that, elevated above both, they can cry out day and night, taking no rest and giving Him no rest, until He does what He intends to do in making His Church a praise in the earth once again [Isaiah 62:6-7]. … When it comes to seeing God’s people revived, His churches renewed, and the world awakened for the Gospel, the power of God will flow in response to the prayers of His faithful people, or it will not flow at all.” —T.M. Moore
