“Your Kingdom Come”

SPEAKER: Troy Champ

We’ve all heard or used the phrase, “Heaven on Earth”. But what does Heaven on Earth look like? Is it a world where our checkbooks balance themselves and puppies stay young and cute forever? Maybe…but maybe we’re thinking too small.

As we examine this week’s verse in The Lord’s Prayer, we contemplate what the world would look like if it worked the way God intended. If Heaven is the sphere where God’s will is perfectly followed, then wherever Heaven is peace reigns, justice holds sway, and love is the rule obeyed. But that isn’t the state of our world now. The bible says the world is not quite how it’s supposed to be. However beautiful it is, it is not quite how God made it.

So, when we pray “Your kingdom come, Your will be done,” we pray God will heal our world and heal our wounds. We pray for God’s will to be done in us as in heaven.
