“Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.”
I don’t remember much from my childhood, but I do remember my grandmother teaching us this prayer. I’ve said it so many times. So many. And I also go back to that image of us boys sitting at my grandmothers feet and on the couch while she talks about it.
A couple years ago when I was doing ministry school at my church, this verse was the center piece of one of the talks. It completely changed my life.
Jesus “teaches us to pray like this”, and he says, may earth become like heaven. This is the Fathers will. It is Jesus’s will. Every sickness and disease is for hell. Life, love, joy and peace are for now. It is our job as Christians to create a place that matches that of heaven.
The voice in this track is Kris Vallotton. He is one of my heroes. His humor and wit, his revelation, love and relationship with the lord and his family and friends just amazes me. I don’t know him personally, but every time I see a video or read a book by him, I am always left knowing the love of God more.
The Kingdom is now. It is at hand. We don’t have to wait till Heaven to experience and live how God made us to do so. He died for this. You are one with Him. He loves you. You rock.
