We are increasingly facing uncertain times today. As natural disasters, financial chaos, and unprecedented tragedies proliferate, please pray for all those who are suffering. Pray that relief efforts would actually be able to get to the people in need and that the power and truth of the gospel would be made known in all the earth. Christ is Lord of all of life now and together we are to join in to be a part of God’s unfolding drama of his mission to humanity and the world. May God help us to be living in the light of the return of Christ, as it relates to present expectation and action towards social, political, and ethical transformation, for we await a redeemer who will renew all things. Therefore, in the apostle Paul’s terms, we are not to be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds, so that we might discern God’s will and offer ourselves as living sacrifices in doing it.
