2. Bring it on! ...
Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Jesus made clear that the Kingdom of God is organic and not organizational. It grows like a seed and it works like leaven: secretly, invisibly, surprisingly, and irresistibly.
I have tried drugs and a little of everything else, and there is nothing in the world more soul-satisfying than having the kingdom of God building inside you and growing.
There can be no Kingdom of God in the world without the Kingdom of God in our hearts.
Justice is like the kingdom of God--it is not without us as a fact, it is within us as a great yearning.
God really meant it when He said, 'Seek FIRST the kingdom of God.'
The Kingdom of God
Edna Dean Proctor (1838-1923)
Through storm and sun the age draws on
When Heaven and earth shall meet,
For the Lord has said that glorious
He will make the place of His feet;
And the grass may die on the summer hills,
The flower fade by the river,
But our God is the same through endless years,
And His word shall stand forever.
And they shall meet in love that knows
Nor race nor creed nor clime,
For the world shall be one brotherhood
In that celestial time;
And happiness shall be the air,
And righteousness the sod,
And earth go singing on her way
About the throne of God!
"What of the night?" O Watchman set
To mark dawn's earliest ray:
"The wind blows fair from the morning star,
Fair from the gates of day;
And over sorrow and sighing shines
The Dream of Galilee --
The Kingdom of God that shall fill the earth
As the waters fill the sea."
