I was just reading the Ethur blog and came across a post that included this quote:
“The future is here. It is just not widely distributed yet.”I think it is important to take a look at our efforts and evaluate whether we are distributing the future or the past. Some organizations/individuals clearly do one or the other. When looking at what you pour your time, energy, ideas and resources into, which one do you think you’re helping to distribute?
This made me think of Jesus’ words, “the kingdom of God is at hand…” in Mark 1. Jesus was the very presence of God, Himself, here on Earth. God’s kingdom isn’t just some far off, mystical, “somewhere up yonder” place – it’s His people here and now, living in His presence, as His body. We should be Kingdom distributors.
Think about your “time, energy, ideas and resources”… Where are they going? What are you pouring your self and your life into? Preserving what you’ve had… or distributing what is to come?
“Father…Your kingdom come, Your will be done – on Earth as it is in Heaven.”
