Your Kingdom Come

I’m leaving town for a few days, but I thought that I would leave something beautiful to read here, in case anyone drops in while I’m gone.  This is from Baxter Kruger:

As the light of Jesus shines into our darkness, we will not be yearning to escape the ordinary, we will be stunned and full of wonder at the ordinary presence of the blessed Trinity in our humanity.

Heaven is not a bodiless state in an invisible place. Heaven is the life of the Father, Son and Spirit coming to full and abiding expression in our human existence, and the earth and the cosmos are filled with the life and love and fellowship of the blessed Trinity.

Meantime we grieve over the self-centeredness, over the lust and greed, the social and racial, environmental and political and religious injustices that run wild around us, wreaking such havoc in our lives.

And we fast and pray for the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to us in our darkness.

We pray for people to be given eyes to see and that the way things are in Jesus Christ would indeed emerge more and more in our human existence.

…on earth as it is in heaven.  Amen!

  1. In Ephesians 1, we find the eyes of our heart are enlightened. With these eyes, we see Jesus high and lifted up. He is King of the kingdom that is and is to come. He is our Shalom.
