As citizen’s of the kingdom of heaven, we wake up everyday, and live by the rules of heaven amid the violent, broken, and unjust powers of earth. We wake up everyday, and pledge allegiance to Jesus which is a pledge we make above the pledge to our country.
We take on Christ’s posture toward the world, with all of his humility, all of his gentleness, all of his sacrificial love and we follow him. We follow him as he reimagines the world. We follow him to work until all of the world looks like Christ’s Kingdom. We follow his way of love, until the barriers that divide us are broken down, until mountains are lowered, and valleys are lifted up, and all people can live on the same level.
