A King and a Kingdom
One (of many) radical thoughts I am trying to grasp from tonight's Bible study at church:
When the kingdom of God is being intoned ("Thy kingdom come...") the focus is NOT about the size or scope of the kingdom or about the stuff IN the kingdom, it is about the POWER of the King. The Kingdom is present because the King is present.
Now, go read all those passages in the gospels or in other places that deal with the kingdom. Mind-blowing, eh? I'm still wrapping my brain around it, and it's making me want to go read more Scripture and more books, which is always a good thing.
