Your Kingdom Come

I’ve been trying to articulate for myself how my life intersects with the Gospel dance of grace and works, the tension between God’s power and our role in His Kingdom coming on earth. Irish folk rock band Rend Collective Experiment has crafted a prayer in song that has been particularly helpful for me as I learn to, as Scott Hagley says, “anticipate and participate in the reconciling work of God.”

Here’s the song:

I was particularly caught by this verse:

Unleash Your kingdom’s power
Reaching the near and far
No force of hell can stop
Your beauty changing hearts
You made us for much more than this
Awake the kingdom seed in us
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ
We are Your church
We are the hope on earth

Which lyrics spoke to you? Is the culture this song is trying to create actually possible?
