Earthquakes and other natural disasters. Famine and war. Israel about to be wiped off the map.
This was the condition of the world when Jesus gave the Great Commission to His first International Disciple Makers. Sound familiar?
His solution to global chaos is that we become increasingly immersed into the will of the Father, life of the Son, and fellowship of their Holy Spirit. When we do, we live in the safest place that exists: The heart of God. We do battle by hallowing of the family name. A name honorable and spotless from all eternity to all eternity.
STRENGTH FOR THE JOURNEY
For soldiers like us, radical obedience is more than compliance. It is our food. A way to live in harmony with the deepest networking of the universe.
Obedience to all He commands reverses the abuse, dysfunction, neglect, and ignorance of our prideful rebellion. It's the only way to insure that His children are really loved, accepted, nurtured, and matured.
One day soon there will be a wedding feast in which the Son gives all back into the hands of the Father. War over. His suffering finished. His Great Commission Initiative complete.
His children safely and securely home. Forever.
