Daily Thought: New Orders

"The Kingdom of God is advancing into the kingdom of darkness, a campaign to ransom people and the earth God intended us to rule. For the Son of Man came to seek and save what was lost. All that was lost. If Christianity seems to you to be having rather less than a remarkable impact on the earth, it is because too many Christians have this idea that we are in a waiting game, that we are basically killing time until Jesus comes back and we all get to go to heaven. We are sitting around like people waiting to catch a flight. That is not what Jesus told us to do; he didn’t say, 'Now hold tight in those pews and twiddle your holy thumbs, I’ll be back soon as I can.' He said, 'As the Father has sent me, I send you' (John 20:21). Let that sink in for a moment. New orders have been given." ~ John and Stasi Eldredge, Love and War, Kindle Edition
