The Creator of all entered creation as a human to change the world from within.  He enters our life for the same reason.  He changes us so we can be His change agents for “As He is, so also are we in this world” (I Jn 4:17).  The kingdom of God is subversive in a positive way.  It is justice and mercy brought near.  It is yeast transforming; salt preserving; oil healing; love persuading and light dispelling darkness.  Lord, help us to be that!

“God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation…Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ.” 2 Cor 5:18a, 20a (NASB)
