I know this thought is not new to me, but it really hit me hard last night as we were reading through the end of Deuteronomy. The people of God are to be a community that reflects a picture of his perfect Kingdom. Not only are each of us to be reflections of Christ who dwells in us through the Spirit, but our community is to reflect the divine community and the perfect Kingdom. This will be our most effective evangelism - when people see us doing our best to live the perfect community in the midst of our broken world they will be won over. "Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
