Administrations come with fanfare. Administrations go with disappointment. It’s an ongoing cycle that can leave us discouraged.
Here’s hope for those burned out on politics . . .
Jesus prayed and taught us to pray for
An environment ruled by
The presence and prompting of God.
That environment is not just
A distant locality we reach when we die,
But a present reality encountered
In Christ-controlled community:
“Your kingdom come, your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.”
A God-ruled environment
Comes into existence
When Christ followers gather
And let Him personally build His ekklesia
(The body of Christ meeting under His direct control),
By each one listening to His voice
And then saying and doing
Whatever He tells them to.
“When you come together, each of you has . . .”
Something to share in the meeting.
“For where two or three gather in My name,
There am I with them”
Perhaps He’s present to personally run His meeting,
Not to be a spectator or an honoree.
But to rule and to reign and to set us free.
