Our human desire to escape our lives is as old as the Bible. Our faith intensifies our desire for it – the Bible is full of escape stories! The problem is that’s not what Jesus envisaged for us.
Sent into the World
Jesus doesn’t want us taken out of the world. Quite the opposite in fact – he sends us into the world. The place for the church is in the world, but not of it.
We are to stay in the world under protective care of God.
Do you want to be more like Christ? Then become more like Jesus: be “a friend of the riffraff”!
