The world is broken-- more so than we know. But for those who know that Christ is coming to establish a new and perfect order, ours is not just a world to endure but a world to invade. Believers have not been stationed here on earth merely to subsist but to actively subvert the enemy's attempts at blinding people in unbelief and burying them under heartbreaking loads of human need.
The kingdom of God changes all that.
