What to Do Until the Kingdom Comes – D Paul Graunke – Good News Magazine
IN HIS model prayer, Christ instructed His disciples to pray “Thy kingdom come.” And so we do – at least some of us do – perhaps perfunctorily, perhaps fervently – but we pray for it. And we hope it will come soon – or we hope it will come later so as not to preempt our plans and worldly pursuits. Or we don’t hope at all. And we speculate about it. And argue over it. When will it come? Will it come at all? What sequence of events will lead to its arrival? But who among us is really preparing for it? Preparing to meet our God is something most of us would consider seriously only on our deathbeds or if we believed that Christ’s return were very, very imminent. Otherwise, forget it for now – we’ll think about it some other day.
