We cannot pray for, dwell

We cannot pray for, dwell in, or serve the city well if we do not bring the savior and the gospel of the city which is so needed. How can we be all about the city without the gospel. If you are all for the city without the gospel, you hate the city. We have to "be the gospel", "do the gospel", and "tell the gospel". We have to tell the gospel. Do not miss this. Please do not revert back to the liberal theology that epitomizes so many high churches that we just need to "be the gospel". "Bring Jesus and bring justice, but please do not just bring justice and think you brought Jesus." You will be affirmed when you bring "justice", you will be condemned when you bring "Jesus". We are called to do both, despite the reaction.
