One of the definitions of chaos is a state of utter confusion. Doesn’t that sound like our modern world? There is chaos everywhere we turn. There is chaos in marriages and families. There is chaos in our sexuality. There is chaos in communities, cities, and economies. There is chaos in nations. There is even chaos in churches! Where does all this chaos come from?
Not everyone is going to be pleased when we decide to live in the Reign. In fact, it can bring a very uncomfortable division between us and those we love.
In a previous post we discussed the fact that making disciples of all nations was the key to world transformation. But where does that process begin? Do we develop a program in church and have people sign-up? Do we incorporate it into our youth ministry? Maybe we should get a bunch of new recruits and start with them. While all these options may have merit, the starting place is more basic still.
