Blessing the nations?

"If you want to come back, O Israel,
you must really come back to me.
You must get rid of your stinking sin paraphernalia
and not wander away from me anymore.
Then you can say words like, 'As God lives...'
and have them mean something true and just and right.
And the godless nations will get caught up in the blessing
and find something in Isreal to write home about."
Jeremiah 4:1-2, the message

Are people around you getting 'caught up in the blessing'? Are they finding something in me to write home about?

I want to bless the world around me. I pray that I am and that I will but sometimes I not so sure...

Have we hijacked Jesus message?

"Somehow Jesus has become pro-rich, pro-war... (pro protestant, pro catholic, pro north, pro south, pro us and not pro them). How did this ever happen? Our faith has been stolen and it's time to take it back."
