Life Without Anxiety

I’m listening to the Plenary Sessions from the conference, Christianity in a Consumer Culture…. She said: “The Gospel invites us to live without anxiety in a world whose one secure event is the coming just reign of God.”

I’m listening to the Plenary Sessions from the conference, Christianity in a Consumer Culture. The audio files are available HERE. Sondra Wheeler made a statement that I needed to hear. She said:

“The Gospel invites us to live without anxiety in a world whose one secure event is the coming just reign of God.”

What a great statement! It’s definitely worth reflecting on throughout the day so it can seep deep. The coming kingdom of God, climactically inaugurated by Jesus in the past, incrementally implemented by his people in the present and fully consummated by Jesus in the future is THE defining event for this earth and its people. It must shape how I live every moment of every day from the inside-out — “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
