More Citizens – Less Politicians
In many nations things have changed. Citizens used to be actively involved in the many affairs of a community. They were knowledgeable and related together for the best of their communities. There was a mutual respect in regards to everyone’s contribution. Today we have abandoned many citizen responsibilities to a more or less ‘professional’ aristocracy that we call politicians. Time and time again is there an outcry that politicians need to reconnect with reality and get out of their cloud. The whole concept is wrong. This is not a way to run healthy communities, cities and nations! This whole compartmentalization of society is disconnecting us all and it makes life more inefficient and costly to run. Too often we ask for transparency and accountability only too late to protect the people responsible.
Yes, it is time for the grass root to awaken. It is time for the Spirit of God to awaken our own spirits and activate the truth of Heaven so the Kingdom of God can be manifest. The people of God are called out of the darkness and into the light. We are still called to be a nation, expressing every corporate beauty possible. How beautiful when people dwell together in peace! Our unique ethnic / national expressions around the earth have a distinct purpose in God’s agenda. He purposed boundaries so that people would have a context to seek God and find Him. Our national expressions are to be places of discovering God.
We are to be like leaven, changing the entire environment and atmosphere where we are. God’s redemption is for all of creation.
Let us awaken and be filled with spirit and truth, living our God-given identity, gifts, talents and calling – for His glory and for the blessing of our community and nation!
When we get more citizens engaged and fewer politicians we can connect Heaven to earth in new ways. Relationships are restored this way and we can disciple our communities in the ways of God. This is hopeful and gives opportunity for many to be involved.
