The Kingdom Has Come Near
The Kingdom of God has come near. It's here, among us now as with the Holy Spirit we model for the world the new way under Christ's reign. All things are now subject to Christ--his politics, his ethics, his compassionate economy--but not all things are yet obedient. Let us invite the world into obedience and into the beautiful dance of God's dominion. As Abram was called into a land unknown to bring blessings yet unseen, let us venture into unknown land and be the visible body of unseen blessings. As Christ was born into the world let New Creation be born in us.
