Your Kingdom Come…

Kingdom

Good morning, Beautiful Ones:

This morning begins day two of our seven day journey into the Lord’s Prayer. We will take our time to break down all seven sentences of the New King James Version of Matthew 6:9-13.

Today, we focus on the first sentence of verse 10,Your kingdom come.”

In this verse of the prayer, Jesus is speaking of God’s Kingdom that must be made manifest on earth. Here is what Jesus said about God’s Kingdom:

Luke 17:20-21

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Coming of the Kingdom

20 Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; 21 nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’  For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”

We are the dwelling place for the Kingdom of God. We are God’s Holy Ambassadors. So when Jesus prays, “Your Kingdom come,” I truly believe the prayer is for the heart and mind of man to experience a personal as well as corporate transformation into nature and character of God. The Kingdom of God is already in you. Ask God to open the eyes of your heart so that you may truly see who He Is. 

Matthew 6:9-13

New King James Version (NKJV)

In this manner, therefore, pray:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

I love you, All, with an everlasting love. 

Your sister, in Christ,

Rev. Marcia Davis
