To belong to God as his adopted children is to be “in his mission to our broken world.” That’s how Centennial Covenant describes one crucial dimension of its purpose. That’s why any of us are made new by Christ.
We see this in the whole biblical narrative of God redeeming this world he made so good, but we humans broke so badly. Israel’s patriarch, Abraham, is promised that his descendants will be blessed – blessed to BE his blessing to the nations (Genesis 12:1-3).
So it is with all who follow Jesus. We’re his “sent ones.” We’re allowed a place in “the mystery of God’s will according to his good pleasure… to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ” (Ephesians 1:9-10).
But all that can feel more like a burdensome obligation than a privileged blessing. How do we let God take us into the flow of his transforming love for his glory, the world’s good, and our own joy?
