“Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10)
As we watch and read about the madness of our culture fractured by systemic issues and violence it is easy to succumb to the feeling of powerlessness and hopelessness. Really, what can I do to change our culture? What can I do to impact what is taking place on the streets of our cities?
Don’t fall for this lie.
There is much you can do.
You can absolutely make a difference.
While God may not be asking us to change the world, God is absolutely asking us to change our world.
Your job and mine is to carve into this dark and hopeless world a piece of God’s kingdom where God’s will is done here on earth as it is in heaven. In our world, in our hearts, homes, neighborhoods, and communities, you impact the world in such a way that everyone around you knows that they are in the presence of God’s kingdom.
- While the world sees black and white, we will love all human beings as brothers and sisters
- While the world treats the wealthy and the poor differently, in our world we treat all human beings with dignity
- While the world resorts to violence and anger, in our world we will always choose God’s peace and love
While we may not be able to change the world, we absolutely can change our world. And together, as we claim more and more territory for God, God will change the world.
“Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
