Jesus hasn't just called his church to go and announce the good news of the forgiveness of sin and the arrival of his Kingdom to people who are far from God. He's also called us to go into the broken places in our cities and live our lives like we actually believe all that stuff he said about redemption and his Kingdom of Heaven are true. We've been called to proclaim Jesus and his Kingdom, yes! But we've also been called to feed the hungry, heal the sick, clothe the naked, free the slave, and fight injustice like we really believe that stuff can no longer be tolerated with the arrival of our King Jesus and his Kingdom.
That's why I want to tell you about my friend Dermiyah. I met Dermiyah through her big brother Kendrick —who also happens to be my Little Brother. As I've gotten to know Kendrick I've also gotten to know his family and their story. I'd like you to hear their story too. And perhaps together, we can partner with one another as Jesus' family to make their situation look #morelikeheaven on earth and less like hell.
