If we live out every biblical command to be thoughtful, winsome, loving ambassadors of Jesus Christ will we change the world? Will everyone become a Christian? Not ultimately. Jesus taught that the wheat and the weeds will grow together until they are sorted out in the end (Matthew 13:24–30). So how do we know if we are being successful in our cultural engagement? Since the fullness of the kingdom of God awaits the second coming and ultimate reign of the Messiah, how we measure successful engagement in this present age is faithfulness, not utopia. We faithfully engage in the spheres of influence that God has providentially placed us within and leave the results to God. —Jonathan Morrow (from, What is the Ultimate Measure of Successful Cultural Engagement?)
