From N. T. Wright's "Surprised by Hope"

The method of the kingdom will match the message of the kingdom. The kingdom will come as the church, energized by the Spirit, goes out into the world vulnerable, suffering, praising, praying, misunderstood, misjudged, vindicated, celebrating: always -- as Paul puts in one of his letters -- bearing in the body the dying of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be displayed.  (p. 112)
