For many of us, we grew up learning to say what has become known as The Lord’s Prayer. Some of the parts are clear and easy to grasp, while others are really deep. The one that comes to mind under the “really deep” category is found in Matthew 6:9-10 where Jesus says, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
What are we praying for there? Specifically, what are we praying for to come? What is God’s kingdom? Why is God’s kingdom coming to earth in answer to this prayer? Yet, we pray for it every time we say this prayer.
I think the Kingdom of God is one of the most misunderstood concepts in the Bible. When we understand the Kingdom of God, we will fully appreciate God, our lives, and His amazing plan to make all things new.
We’ll look at the Kingdom of God on Sunday. And when it comes, all that’s wrong in the world will be made right.
