The World is Changing
Our new pastor, Rev. Deane, taught Sunday school a few weeks ago. She said something that struck me - that I hadn't considered before.
The incarnation, life, death and resurrection of Jesus changed the world. It brought the Kingdom of God to the earth. The world was changed.
And yet the world was not completely changed. Because of Christ, the world is changing. We are moving from what was to what will become, and all of creation groans with the change.
We are not there yet, and yet we are moving closer. It is so easy to say that the world is getting worse and worse, but as Christians, we can claim that the world is changing, and it is moving closer and closer to the Kingdom of God. Isn't there hope in that for all of us?
