The tactics of Jesus have the power to liberate our imaginations and inspire creative subversions of the status quo. They carve out a space where we can ask questions we never knew we could ask:
What if it's possible to live as citizens of
God's abundant kingdom no matter
what government we live under?
What if it's possible to work against the
principalities and powers of this age
without being captive to them ourselves?
What if it's possible to live God's good life
here and now, no matter what economic
situation we find ourselves in?
What if another world is possible?
What if it's already here?
To interupt the logic of scarcity by trusting Jesus in our homes, churches, and communities is to proclaim the only true economy --- the Kingdom that has broken into this world and will one day utterly consume it in a new heaven and earth.
