“I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth.” John 17:15–19 (ESV)
There are moments in life where the Spirit moves us from where our plans have taken us to where God’s purpose needs us positioned. What is rare is when this occurs simultaneously on an individual and societal level. Together we’re living through a season marked by concurrent crisis. One follows another. As a result, some desire to get back to normal. Others wish to build back better. As followers of Jesus, we need clarity on where God is inviting us to trust Him deeper.
None of us arrives at clarity alone, so together let’s anchor in listening, loving, and then leading out where the Holy Spirit is inviting us to follow.
