He will come again in glory. Until then, we wait, and we testify to the reality of His empire.

The Empire of Grace

Jesus came to announce the arrival of the empire of heaven. The law of this empire is the law of grace, a law that reflects both the will and character of our Most High God. This empire is coming and will never ever end. So as other-worldly and counter-cultural as it may seem, we can begin to live as citizens of this empire even now. Seek His empire, even when it's at odds with the norms and wisdom of the world around you.
