Thy Kingdom Come, In Whosoever

Posted in Religion on June 5, 2010 by bradellison

One day, the Fundamentalists challenged the Rabbi, and said “When can we expect to see this Kingdom of God you keep talking about?”

And the Rabbi said “you don’t get it, do you?  The Kingdom of God doesn’t work that way.  You can’t see it, won’t be able to say ‘ah, here it is.’  No.

“The Kingdom of God is within you.”

These are the words of my Master.  Thy will be done, here on this highway.  His Kingdom extends as far as we decide to make it extend, as far as our actions cause His will to be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Becoming aware of this truth, can one help but feel convicted?  I have failed in my responsibilities as a Follower of the Way.  I’ve failed, so many times, to even try expanding the Kingdom of Heaven around me.
