The horizontal and vertical of faith.

I am currently reading Hugh Halter’s “Flesh: Bringing the Incarnation Down to Earth”, and within it he writes:
” The best witness isn’t telling people concepts about God. The best witness of the gospel happens when people see an entire community sticking up for people who are nameless, voiceless, or powerless. Every Jesus follower should be an activist, an abolitionist, or at least an advocate. And every Christian community should find something to make a rukus about to get her! As Matthew 5:16 says, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” If you live horizontally, people will look vertically to God.
