The Life of God's Missional People

"In short, as God's covenant people, Christians are meant to be
  • a people who are light to the world by their good lives (1 Pet)
  • a people who are learning obedience and teaching it to the nations (Mt)
  • a people who love one another in order to show who they belong to (Jn)

It would be heard to find a more concise articulation of the integration of Christian ethics and Christian mission."

--Christopher Wright, The Mission of God, 392.
