Kingdom Come

Dear Kingdom Dwellers,

“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10)

Do we want to see Jesus' kingdom or our kingdom?

Are we ready to consent to God’s presence, and let God determine what God wants us to do?

How much of your life is spent trying to maintain a feeling of what is comfortable versus allowing your world to be turned upside down by Jesus ?

When did you last read something that somebody wrote about Jesus and say, that is contrary to how I live and they might be right?

“God dwells among the lowliest of people. God sits on the dust heap among prison convicts. With the juvenile delinquents. God stands at the door, begging bread. God throngs with the beggars at the place of alms. God is among the sick. He stands in line with the unemployed in front of the free employment bureaus. Therefore, let them who would meet God visit the prison cell before going to the temple. Before one goes to church let them visit the hospital. Before one reads their Bible, let them help the beggar standing at his door.”   Toyohiko Kagawa “Meditations,” Cited in William Axling's “Kagawa”

“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Mathew 6:10)  Let us all reflect prayerfully on this verse along with our ministry team in Rapid City who are using this verse as their theme this week.

Still in one peace,
Pastor David J. Jensen
