Our God-Given Calling Shapes Our Story Today

Here’s a great quote by Michael Williams on how the kingdom of God impacts a Christian’s story today:

The kingdom of God calls the redeemed into faithful enlistment in the cause of Christ in the world, and for the world. Far from entailing a disdain for the creaturely realm, saying yes to Christ entails, not a rejection of creation but a rejection of sin and a deeply religious affirmation of the things of God. Our God-given calling includes reflecting God’s self-sacrificial, redemptive concern for a sin-scarred world.
