Sex, money, and power-three great temptations. Yet, of the three, power may be the least discussed and the most problematic. Christians can choose to live lives of complete chastity or they may give away all their earthly possessions, but none of us can completely empty ourselves of power. Therefore, we are forced to ask the question: is there any “good news” about power? The answer is yes, but only if we look to a God who destroys the false idea that for one person to have power, he must take it from another. God uses his power to empower others-and God calls us to go and do likewise.

This lecture was given as part of the Gospel & Culture Lecture series featuring Andy Crouch.
