Praying and Working for the Kingdom

"We cannot tell how much of the righteousness of the kingdom will be established within ordinary history, but it is our responsibility to pray and work that that kingdom will be established on earth as it is and will be in heaven. As we look through history toward the great mountain of the Lord, we cannot wholly distinguish the foothills from its ultimate fulfillment where there is no longer day and night, revival and decline, but only perpetual light in the face of the Lamb of God. We can only know that we are required to move toward that mountain with every grace and energy that the outpoured Spirit can provide."

Dynamics, p. 434
