Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.” Revelation 11:15
One day that will cone to pass. Christ will come again and claim His own. Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord. When is known only by God. But until then, we can usher in the Kingdom of Our Lord and of His Christ into our little world
Growing up along a river, I would perch on the dock in the still of the morning and enjoy the serenity. The water currents lazily flowing by were barely audible. Then, a cypress ball would plunk into it from one of the mighty limbs that stretched over the banks. The sound would catch my attention and I’d watch the glassy surface turn into concentric circles, expanding out further and further.
So it is when we accept Christ to reign over our kingdom. He enters the world of our lives through our heart. From there His influence spreads out in all directions, touching the lives with whom we come into contact, first in our own homes, then the workplace and beyond. Perhaps we do not notice the ripple effect. We think we are of no influence. But Christ is working through us in ways we will never know. All we see is the surface.
From a mighty cypress tree that stands 3-4 stories tall drops one little cypress ball, about the size of a quarter. Yet, when it falls in the river, it disturbs gallons upon gallons of water from coursing along. It interrupts the current. So can our witness ripple into the world.
Never believe you don’t make a difference
