Christ Jesus did not come to transform culture directly.
He did come to change the heart of men and women, who in turn will have an indirect impact on culture, as they allow the love of God to be shed abroad in their hearts toward all the neighborhoods around them.
Mathew 22 Jesus states that the two great commandments were:
Firstly: To love God with all of our hearts, souls and minds.
Secondly; To love your neighbor as yourself.
Our Lord and Our Friend also states in John 13 verse 35: “I give you a new commandment: love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must also love one another”.
The distinguishing mark of His followers is the Love they share for each other.
The Privilege of sharing what Our Lord and Our Friend has done fo us. To be a follower is to share the good news, with all who will hear.
Our Lord and Our Friend wants all of His followers to be His representatives, that have a transforming impact on the cultures and communities around them.
