Brian Harris from Avenir Leadership, joined Bec and Jeziel to share an inspirational message.

Tom Holland’s book ‘Dominion: How the Christian Revolution Remade the World’, discusses how Christianity made an impact in the world. He examined how the Romans conquered Jerusalem, because the Jews would not defend themselves on the Sabbath day. Some people may see this as a ‘failure of faith’ but there is another more fortuitous perspective.

If Jesus was born 100 years before the Roman conquest, he would have died and been forgotten. Because there would have been no way to spread the message. Without the conquest Christianity would have disappeared. “What we think is disastrous…In the long term turns out to be the providence and goodness of God.”

“God writes straight with crooked lines. Sometimes we think things are completely out of control…But if you play the long game God knows exactly what he is up to and makes no mistakes.”
