Steve Wilson makes a case for ministry that both proclaims the truth and helps the poor :

Jesus' ministry methodology was not either/or; it was a weaving together of both. And it has not been superseded. He is at work in a very similar way through his people today. The redemptive reign of God comes upon broken people as we both proclaim the good news with our mouths, and as we embody (put flesh on) the love of Christ to our neighbours – perhaps particularly to the poorest, most vulnerable and marginalised among us.
