    There is this quote from the TV show Angel that goes: "We live as though the world were what it should be to show the world what it can be." I find myself thinking more and more about how the world should be and the call of the Gospel and honestly, I don't know why the world can't be better given the power God has bestowed on His people. Not utopia…but better.

      That reminds me of the line in Switchfoot's "Dare You to Move":

      The tension is here/The tension is here

      Between who we are and who we should be/Between how it is and how it could be

      But as far as I'm concerned, Tom Cruise said it best (albeit in a very unfortunate context), we're the only ones who can help. There's no eternal difference to be made outside of Christ, so if we don't have hope, who can?
