Which Kingdom Will You Choose?

January 30, 2012

At a pep rally in Alabama, some Mexican kids were sitting in the front seats, and other students started chanting, “Mexicans to the back!”

At a local church in Alabama, a woman commented that because she is Hispanic some people don’t want to pass the peace with her anymore at church. (This American Life, Act One: Alien Experiment)

Both of these situations are infuriating, hateful and cruel.

But the most despicable is the scene in the church, when people united by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ choose to let the kingdoms of this world, with its own laws and distorted sense of fairness and love, divide Christ’s kingdom.

We are given a choice, every day, to choose which kingdom we will grant our allegiance to.

Which kingdom will you choose?
