Biblical balance is important in every area of our lives. It is important in our personal lives as we seek to combine prayer and action. It is central to the life of the local congregation as it combines the inward journey of worship, fellowship, and nurture with the outward journey of mission to the world. It is crucial as we seek a proper balance of evangelism and social concern in our practice of mission. And it is essential as we seek to shape political life in a way that is faithful to Christ.
