"As Christians, Does it Matter Where We Live?" - Andy Crouch

About This Video

Recently, the High Calling spoke with Andy Crouch, Executive Editor of Christianity Today, about the significance of our occupying a specific place within God's Creation.

While we're thinking about stewardship, Andy reminds us that we are where we are for a reason: to be a part of God's redemption as it happens everywhere. An old saying goes, "The devil is in the details." While this may just be another way of saying that if you don't pay attention to the small stuff you'll end up paying for it later, it may also be giving the devil too much ground. 

As Andy points out, it's really God who is in the details. Just as the incarnation was a specific event, in a specific time and place, so have we been placed where and when we are for a reason. God's plans work, not only on the grand, sweeping scale of stars and galaxies, but also on the small, quirky scale of atoms and particles, and—perhaps the strangest of all—on the messy particularities of our human lives. Who we are and where we are matters, and it's there that God meets us.
