Unheeded Secret

It is amazing how some things can jump out at you
when you are searching for truth.

"Jesus answered, 'My kingdom is not of this world.'"
                           John 18:36

If that is true, why do we work so hard to establish His
kingdom on earth? I won't mention any parties but one
of them has been working over the years to establish
God's kingdom through elections. There are churches
whose goal it is to make their city, a Godly city. Jesus
was not just talking about His time on earth, but the
'is not' includes the now. I am not saying that Christians
should not vote. I am saying that we don't have to have
a Christian running for the Presidency in order to vote.
We do need to seek God as to how to vote, and do our
homework. Which platform represents our values?
They are polls apart. Please vote.

So, what is the calling of the Church?
It is to make Christ known.

Oswald Chambers narrows it down to the
              Unheeded Secret:
"We must get rid of the plague of the spirit of 
this religious age in which we live. 
The central point of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ 
is a personal relationship with Him, 
not public usefulness to others."

Somehow this did not get posted today!
