In Ezekiel 47, the prophet shares an amazing vision. God’s kingdom is an ever deepening river, pushing out ever further into the landscape. It’s not static but dynamic. It’s not restrained but expansive. It’s not protecting ground but advancing and taking new ground. Wherever the river flows it contacts dry and parched places. It brings new life, fruitfulness and hope.

This expression of God’s kingdom dominates the way we think about church. The Church is an extension of Jesus’ mission, the heart of God to rescue the enslaved, bind up the broken and reconcile the alienated. We are sent to do the same.

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples…”

Matthew 28:18-19
