This is the future that we, the church, belong to because of the work of Jesus. We will be a beautiful, redeemed, embodied, and diverse people from every nation, tribe, people, and language united in the worship of Jesus.
I am constantly telling my children to look both ways before they cross the street. It is necessary, especially with my boys, to remind them often that they have to look in both directions. I need the same advice and I need it just as often. John Stott, in his commentary of the book of Titus says, “the best way to live now, in this present age, is to learn to do spiritually what is impossible physically, namely to look in opposite directions at the same time.” What does he mean by this? And how would that help us live in this present time?
