The Intersection

As a perk of my job, I get to rub shoulders with some brilliant people. A few of those guys are in a pastor’s group I meet with each Wednesday afternoon.

I’ve been wrestling with a wickedly insightful comment made by Jeff Krajewski, pastor of Common Ground here in Indy, at our get together last month. I went all Milli Vanilli and sang it like it was my own in a recent post, so I’m both clearing up the unintended plagiarism and expounding on its wisdom.

“We live at the intersection of a world that is present but passing away, and a Kingdom that’s present and yet still to come.”

All around us is a world full of brokenness, slowly dying from a terminal illness called sin. And yet all around us God is at work, bringing to life a new and coming Kingdom through the work of His Son Jesus Christ.

And even more personally….

My flesh is broken, slowly dying from a terminal illness called sin. And yet inside of me God is at work, bringing to life a new and coming Kingdom through the work of His Son Jesus Christ.

Heartache and victory. Temporary and eternal. Death and life.

We live at the intersection.
