The call to action, to have an active faith, is well-supported in Scripture. “Ordinary” does not mean passive. All believers should live out what they believe, should practice what they preach. But misguided or chaotic activism makes us sloppy. The real question is: What kind of action? Why – and to what end? There is a difference between frenetic activism and faithful activity in the daily struggles and joys of life.
