Is It Not Time for that Day to Dawn?

Talent has been Christianized already on a large scale.  The political power of states and kingdoms has been long assumed to be, and now at last really is, as far as it becomes their accepted office to maintain personal security and liberty.  Architecture, arts, constitutions, schools, and learning have largely been Christianized.  But the money power, which is one of the most operative and grandest of all, is only beginning to be, though with promising tokens of a finally complete reduction to Christ and the uses of His Kingdom… That day, when it comes, is the morning, so to speak, of the new creation.  It is not time for that day to dawn?

– Howard Bushnell
