But how do we do that? How do we stay faithful that that identity, and grow in maturity of faith and purpose? One writer has suggested that every Christian needs to learn how to follow their ‘holy discontent’. What does that mean: holy discontent? We know, simply by turning on the news, that there are allot of things wrong in the world. But not all of the wrongs in the world touch our hearts in the same way. For each of us, one or another particular thing resonates more than the others. And that could be this ’holy discontent’, that which Paul says, “To each individual manifestation of the Spirit, it is given for some benefit,” for something that’s concrete. And maybe, God has given us this special sensitivity to some particular issue because He is calling us to shine as light in the world there. And if each of us made the commitment to brighten up just one dark corner of the earth … There are many things we could commit to, but the point is that if we commit to something we must do so with the light of Christ and the mind of Christ. And if we approach the world in that way imagine what the world could be like even twelve months from now?
