This was told to Chris Seay, pastor of Ecclesia Church, by a member of his community, during a time when he was burnt out on how crappy things seem…
“Pastor, don’t forget the Kingdom is already here. I used to spend every weekend for the last decade at a club down the road here in [Houston] called Emo’s. And I’d start every Sunday night with a drop of ecstasy on my tongue and I’d wash it down with Bacardi 151. And now I come here on Sunday nights, and I close my night with the Body of Christ on my tongue, and I wash it down with the Blood of Christ. Don’t forget, pastor, the kingdom is here.”
