Matthew 6-13:Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
I was thinking about the Lord's Prayer the othe day. I was thinking about how Heaven enters our lives in the most common of experiences(Thy will be done in earth). It enters in seeing our daily living needs met (our daily bread). It enters in the midst of our relationships with others (forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors). It enters in the quality of our vertical walk with the Father (lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil). It is apparent that Heaven is directly linked with Earth in every important aspect of life. For there really is only one kingdom, one true power and one great glory (for ever. Amen).
