Mind, you, until Jesus returns we won’t see it completed. Jesus spoke of dissatisfaction with this world when He said, when you pray, say God, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
For example, since there is no racism in heaven, pray and work to get rid of it on earth. Since there is no child abuse there – none here. Since there is no loneliness there – none here, and so on.
No wonder Bono in U2 sings I believe in the Kingdom to come, when all the colours blend as one… You broke the bonds, you loosed the chains, you carried the Cross of my shame… But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.
We seek a new way in our broken world. Only God in the end can change the way things are – but He has invited us to be part of it. We must long for, speak, struggle and live for a changed world.
