If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. -C.S. Lewis
As Christians living in a world that has not yet emerged as the new Kingdom, we are left living our lives in constant tension between what is and what could be. We experience this within our own person, in the Church, and across the globe.
Tension exists between light and dark, healing and broken, tradition and discovery, and so on. And we most often find ourselves trying to bridge the gap, with legs spread wide.
As the City Salt blog ventures into this discussion for our next series, ask the Lord to expose which tensions you may be straddling and how he may bring relief to your tired and bent-out-of-shape hearts.
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.
