Well, it’s Wednesday.
Folks are either elated or really ticked, for all sorts of reasons. How sad to see this country so deeply divided. How sad to see the Church so deeply divided.
We were having a ministry fast day (something we try and do the first Wednesday of every month) and as we were worshiping, I sensed Jesus turning my thoughts toward his Kingdom.
It was good to be reminded that there are two sorts of Kingdoms in this world. There are the governments of man, which at their very best are a disappointment (and they are most often far from their very best). And there is the Kingdom of God, which is so utterly good and right and beautiful you fall in love with it whenever you get even a glimpse.
We are told to care about the kingdoms of this world. They can do some good and a great deal of damage. We must pray for the king.
But we are urged to give our hearts to the Kingdom of God. To throw ourselves into its advance.
I found the reminder helpful.
