ambassadors of the Kingdom

here is a great quote that i found on the God's Politics blog written by Jin S. Kim, who is the pastor of the Church of All Nations in Minneapolis, MN.

"As "ambassadors" of God's kingdom, we Christians ought to be the leaders in racial reconciliation, for "they will know we are Christians by our love." Instead, we lag behind a secular society in getting along, even among so-called Christians! That the segregated church in America is patterned after a racist society, and not the other way around, is an indictment of our life together and cause for national repentance and revival. How did we get here, and how do we move forward?"

there really isn't much more i can say. while this is an indictment on the Church as a whole, i take this very seriously as a wake up call to myself. Christ inaugurated a Kingdom in which peace and reconciliation are some of its defining characteristics. i take this as a charge to move. i must get back to the understanding that faith is more than just words, it is movement.
