Practicing Resurrection

Even if there were no heaven and there were no hell, would you still follow Jesus? Would you follow him for the life, joy, and fulfillment he gives you right now?” Tony Campolo

To say 'yes' to the profound question Tony asks is to realize Kingdom Living.

My answer to the question is yes. It's not our effort to say 'yes' that brings the kingdom about, though. The Kingdom is already here. It is in surrendering to Jesus day-in and day-out that we get to see the Kingdom.

Matthew 10
Don't begin by traveling to some far-off place to convert unbelievers. And don't try to be dramatic by tackling some public enemy. Go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the kingdom is here. Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons. You have been treated generously, so live generously.
