what we need now

15 01 2008


perfection will not be brought to this world until we live as one, feel each other’s pain, enjoy each other’s happiness and share in everything else so that no one lacks anything.

justice will be made real then.

until then, this world is the best we have.

but the good news is that it can be made better.

when we seek to live out our lives as children of a perfect King, with the necessary authority to banish that which does not belong in a perfect kingdom – the poverty, theft, injustice, fighting, strife and other things that make us cringe to be alive – then this world will be a wonderful place to live, and love, in. the squabbles we have over possessions will be no longer. the difficulties we have as people who lack… something will be no longer. and it’ll be a glorious day when that perfection comes to this broken world.

sure, the world does need love, sweet love, but it’s also something else that is needed:

We have all we need in You
And all we need is You
All we need is You
Rich or poor, God I want You more
Than anything that glitters in this world
Be my all, all consuming fire
You can have all my hands can hold
My heart, mind, strength and soul
Be my all, all consuming fire

the song is “all we need” by charlie hall. God is all we need. the things of this world can and will fade away, but what cannot fade will never fade away.

i finished when necessary use words. it was good.
