On this rock I will build my church.
By human calculation, the church should have failed.
It began with just a dozen men, up against a world population of two hundred million.
In the main, those men were uneducated, poor, and powerless—slim chance they could stage a campaign that would amount to much.
The infrastructure of the crusade was ludicrous: no headquarters, no credentials, no connections, no money—a hit-or-miss, seat-of-the-pants operation.
It should have failed, but it didn’t—it was stunningly successful. Within thirty years of its launch, it had infiltrated every corner of the known world.
Because it was Christ’s movement, not humans’.
It still is.
Jesus is the CEO of the church.
No human is in control.
