A-1 - Encouraged by What You Read?

When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place. For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:10-11

When Jesus Christ returns, we will no longer need to worry about transforming our culture because He will set up His kingdom rule. But until that time, we need to reach the world for Him and for our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

What is the role of Christians in our society? Jeremiah 29:4-11 illustrates this foundational principle: Society is transformed when God’s people execute His strategy in history in a Christ-centered way.

The prophet Jeremiah challenged the Jews in Babylonian captivity to regain their spiritual clarity. The Babylonian pagans weren’t Israel’s greatest problem to deal with. The Jews had become pagans themselves and had failed to remain God’s distinct, unique people.

When the church fails to be God’s unique people, the entire culture will suffer the effects of sin. Have you thought about your unique role in transforming culture? In reaching others for Christ?
