For those of you that have been with me a while, you know I am passionate about the importance of the domains of society.
In Romans 13, Paul illustrates that God has established many authorities or spheres of leadership in the world. This unique tapestry form human culture. The sovereignty of God reigns above them all, yet to all of them we owe a specific honor. Domains are unique but connected together forming the tapestry of society. They are the power structure of society designed by God to exert massive influence and provide leadership and direction in society. These structures have delegated authority from God.
If people relate to domains and live within them according to God’s design, they become supporters of order, freedom and blessings. Domains operate in balance when Christians understand their importance and intentionally seek to influence them for the Kingdom of God. To influence a nation you do not need the majority but only a committed few, willing to sacrifice and take leadership of these structures.If people relate to domains & live within them according to God’s design, they become supporters of order, freedom & blessings.

The question is who will care enough to fill these domains? Someone or some group will assume leadership in these society-shaping areas. This has astounding implications for Christians today, with humanism failing, and the developing nations looking for a model to follow, the church is being given an opportunity to build and rebuild the nations of the earth. To do this we need to understand how authority flows through God-given domains and we need to understand how to turn a nation around.
