Currently reading an interesting book “Surprised by Hope.”
God created the world and placed man in it, his is in the process of reconciling and redeeming that world. Those who are followers of Christ are part of that process. And as we live today in anticipation of the final restoration of the world, we are called to exhibit that we are living as ones who hope with certainty that we will be transformed and reign with Christ in the future world. We are to live the Sermon on the Mount today in expectation that it will one day be the norm for the world.
