Stringfellow: repentance

Tuesday, July 4, 2023
    Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
    —Matthew 6:10 (KJV)
    The problem of America as a nation, in biblical perspective, remains this elementary issue of repentance. The United States is, as all nations are, called in the Word of God to repentance. That, in truth, is what the church calls for, whether knowingly or not, every time the church prays Thy Kingdom come.
    ... William Stringfellow (1928-1985), The Politics of Spirituality, Westminster Press, 1984, p. 62 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 6:10; Dan. 2:44; 7:13,27; Col. 1:13-14; Rev. 11:15; 20:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your people wait expectantly for Your will to prevail.
