You would never know it by looking at the world or most Christians, but we aren’t here to live a pleasant life, make a fair amount of money, and retire in comfort. We are here to be ambassadors of Jesus, His representative in this very foreign kingdom. Our mission is to help bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth as it is in Heaven (Matthew 6:9-10). If you’ve looked around lately, I think you’ll agree we are a long way from realizing God’s Kingdom on earth.
Things get a little crazier with each passing day, while we wring our hands and wonder what we can do. We pray for peace, unity, and our leaders, while we wait for someone to come along and make things better. All the while, the Church sits quietly by, trying to weather the storm and live to see another day.
