Your Kingdom Come

Twitter is a constant encouragement to us. We follow writers, pastors, friends, and organizations. There are many tweets weekly that really inspire us. Here is what is on our mind today.

@advntconspiracy: Kingdom change always begins with loving those who never thought they were worth the kingdom.

Even though Advent Conspiracy is about changing the world through Christmas, they still speak out throughout the year to encourage us to continue what begins each year at Christmastime. It makes sense rather than just showing up again next year without living it daily and it's a helpful reminder of why we make the changes we make.

This tweet came in this morning and just struck my fancy. It's different than what's been being said lately and I actually had to read it a few times through before I could start thinking about it. But once you begin to understand it, it's pretty self-explanatory. In order for His kingdom to come and His will be done, we must love those He loves aka "those who never thought they were worth the kingdom". Those who feel so certain that they are not worth God's love are the ones who need His love the most.

I'm going to keep reading this throughout the day in order to really understand it. But here's a music video that I think helps. And we can all take comfort in the chorus.

But don't you know who you are, What's been done for you? Yeah don't you know who you are?
You are more than the choices that you've made, You are more than the sum of your past mistakes, You are more than the problems you create, You've been remade.
