"Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
reading, increase comprehension, and excite
the imagination, it can skew the portrayal of
a critical biblical concept: the nature of a kingdom. In fantasy
tales, kingdoms are controlled from castles, ruled over by kings
or queens, and defended by knights on horseback. But that is
not an accurate picture of the kingdom of God.
kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it
is in heaven," He defined the kingdom of God. The kingdom of
God is the place where God's will is done. That obviously
includes heaven, and Jesus prayed that it would one day include
earth -- which it will. The easiest way to see the kingdom of
God extended on earth is for human beings to make God's
priorities their priorities. When we act, think, and speak like
God, we are manifesting His will in our presence. In that place.
As you plan your day and your week, think about priorities.
How closely are your priorities aligned to the priorities of God?
Where God's will is done, His blessings follow.
We live by demands when we should live by priorities.
