How Do You Define Kingdom Culture? (Diverse Not Divided; Unique We Stand United)


In light of the racial turmoil in our country, I wanted to share a video that is a beautiful reminder of the opportunity we have before us, as The Church, to stand united, yet unique, diverse, yet not divided!
We stand shoulder to shoulder, facing outward, to love and serve a lost, lonely and hurting world, not facing inward in holy huddles.
Luke 17:21 says the Kingdom of God is inside us. It’s time we let Him shine through our many cracks!

“Later, he was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, and he gave them this reply: “The kingdom of God never comes by watching for it. Men cannot say, ‘Look, here it is’, or ‘there it is’, for the kingdom of God is inside you.” (Luke 17:21PHILLIPS)

Our church is in #21daysofprayer and I am storming Heaven on behalf of our country. Lord, draw our hearts closer to You. Our closeness to YOU is what closes the divide between your children.  When we are all climbing in Your lap, like little children trying to get as close as we can to the heartbeat in a chest. Your marvelously massive lap will hold ALL WHO CLIMB IN!

Won’t you climb up and in with me today and everyday, snuggling in as near as can be to the heartbeat of God?

“Diverse But Not Divided” by Katie Wilson

Divisions come in all shapes and sizes.
The enemy capitalizes
on our compromises.

It’s time we take a stand.
Diverse but not divided; unique we stand united.

We are Brothers by the blood,

in Christ and in our veins;

Satan planting seeds of hate
that fester in our brains.

Sirens that were meant to protect
Satan uses to redirect:
“They can’t be trusted; you’ll get busted.”
Our filters are broken, tainted,rusted.
Oh how our minds have been adjusted!

It’s time we take a stand.

Diverse but not divided; unique we stand united.

Our generation
is seeing a nation

drowning in the aftermath of segregation

claiming there is no discrimination.
THERE IS!

But…

It doesn’t have to stay that way;
that is why we’re here today.
Lord, we don’t know what to do

but our eyes are on you.
Show us the first step of something brand-new.

It’s time we take a stand.

Diverse but not divided; unique we stand united.

Complacency, complaints, conspiracies, contempt
satan is banking on our theories.
No one is exempt!

Conversations seasoned with salt
storming Heaven together
to the one we exalt-

Satan is ticked;
he can’t stand it when we stand,
when we’re all together

walking hand-in-hand!

It’s time we take a stand.

Diverse but not divided, unique we stand united!

When the darkness comes to light,
He has no power; we’ve won the fight.
We are children of the day,
not children of the night!

It really is finished!

“New” is always laced with uncertainty
Bound by truth and love,

we will step into it with ever-increasing clarity!

I’m in; are you?
Jesus bring the NEW!

We are taking a stand!

Diverse and far from divided,
Beautifully unique, on tiptoes, we are SO united!

In the words of Ms Evelyn,
“I smell rain! “
Do you?

Amen!
