Our expectation of the kingdom cannot be a passive waiting, a sweet, soft occupation with ourselves and our like-minded friends. No, if we truly expect God’s kingdom, we will be filled with divine power. Then the social justice of the future – with its purity of heart and divine fellowship – will be realized now, wherever Jesus himself is present. Our belief in the future must bring change to the present!

The mighty spirit of the divine light of heaven appears, like the sun, to all men, as the life-giving and life-sustaining power of universal fire. In the light and unity of Jesus Christ, God’s heart of glowing, flaming love has achieved the fulfillment of His eternal will.- Eberhard Arnold
The peace of God brings the strength of the life of God. It brings the power of His love. It consists of active service. It lives in deed. To the first call, “Lay down your arms!” belongs the second, “Take up your tools!”- Eberhard Arnold
