And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Taken from the twenty-forth chapter and fourteenth verse of Matthew’s Gospel.
I believe in the Kingdom Come. Then all the colours will bleed into one. Bleed into one. But yes, I'm still running. You broke the bonds. And you loosed the chains. Carried the cross of my shame. Oh my shame, you know I believe it. – U2
A few things that get my heart pumping: living for Christ and building His Kingdom … seeing people fall deeper in love with Him … hearing from God and sharing His truth with others … and a pretty close one right after those things would be U2.
I’m excited as our three mission teams prepare to partner with God this December in Guinea, Morocco and Thailand. I’m excited to see the future life-change that will happen in the lives of those who will go. And I’m excited that we get to be a part of preparing His Kingdom to come here on earth, as it is in heaven … as we go, as we send, as we give and as we pray.
EDIT: and speaking of U2 …
Apple has just launched another new iPod, this time with video capabilities along with iTunes 6.0. I wasn’t too excited until I open up the new iTunes store to check out what videos they have for download.
Hmmm … some TV shows like Lost and Housewives (yawn) … some Pixar animations (not bad) … but then my eyes are drawn into the music video section … to my utter delight I see nine U2 videos prepared and waiting for me to download.
God is good.
Let me live a life devoted to seeking first His Kingdom and His righteousness. Let U2 be the soundtrack of that life. And with that I can say: life is good.
