How far are we willing to take this? Does the Christian walk end at salvation? If so, why don’t we get taken up to heaven right away, and spare all this misery here on earth? Seriously, let’s face it, life is good because God is good, but sometimes (if not lots of the time) life can be an incredible drag. Answer: we are here on earth because we have a mission. The mission is not getting closer to God (however, the mission will never reach its full potential without that), no, that is only the means. Really, we would get a whole lot closer to God a whole lot faster in His presence. The mission, my friends, is to build His kingdom on earth. Building Christ’s kingdom on earth looks like at least a percentage of the two billion people on earth that claim the name “Christian” stepping up to the plate, giving up their selfish pride, and going and living the great commission.
