The Lamb that was slain is worthy to receive power.
The path of Christ,
the political commitment to
– truth,
– servanthood,
– proclamation, and
– suffering love,
despite appearances,
the channel of the power of God.

[from “The Spirit of God and the Politics of Men” by John Howard Yoder in For the Nations: Essays Public and Evangelical, Eerdmans, 1997, p236.]
