A fence-less society is God’s dream for us, and this is definitely not a pipe dream. We will live to see a society built solely on love and mutual respect; a world where even animals will stop killing each other; a world void of crime and abuse; a world where we can devote our energies to build, create, invent, explore, interact, and inspire. – Welcome to God’s kingdom!
God has paved a way to fulfill His dream by sending us the Prince of Peace. Jesus is the door opener to God’s peace on earth.
Whether we like it or not, we have an enemy to our soul. This enemy has many names and may look like the nightmare figure of a fairy tale, but his hate for us is very real. Satan has affected all of us one way or another. Despite his vicious activities though, he will not bring us down if we trust in the Lord.
As part of His salvation plan, God chose to become powerless and relinquish Himself. This goes against everything we believe. We believe in warfare and conquering by force. How in the world could God save us by letting go of His power and submitting to human limitations? As puzzling as it may be, God’s method of salvation is clearly not ours to choose.
The devil mistakenly believed that by having Jesus killed on the cross he would emerge as the winner. Ironically, Jesus won the war by letting Himself get killed. Jesus upholds the principle of peace to His dying breath.
Like yeast permeates the dough, that’s how God’s kingdom permeates the earth. In a world full of fences and ongoing violence we are offered a different way of thinking and a new code to live by. Following Jesus we become the light of the world, the salt of the earth and are blessed beyond compare. However, among all the gifts that Jesus has given – friendship with God is His greatest gift of all.
