Kingdom of Heaven

8 11 2011

Over the weekend my pastor who is doing a series on the Beatitudes (Matthew 5) posed this question, what is the Kingdom of Heaven?


Depending on your version of the Bible you can find reference to the Kingdom of Heaven  between 31 to 35 times, most found in the book of Matthew.


In Matthew 13 we find the Kingdom of Heaven likened to the sower, yeast in the dough, the weeds, a hidden treasure, a mustard seed, a pearl of great price and a net.


The Kingdom of Heaven which Christ described is nothing like we expect. We think of it as the place where God dwells. But it is so much more. It is a place where the Glory of God is on display, a place of healing and the power of God in our lives.


I feel a piece of the Kingdom of Heaven is within all of us when Christ dwells there. He is and always has been my connection to that eternal place most think of when they think of the Kingdom of Heaven. Yet the more days I spend on this earth the more I believe we must allow that Kingdom of Heaven within us to invade the world around us.


God made us his ambassadors and as such we share the Kingdom of Heaven with the world. I hope today you will allow the Kingdom of Heaven inside of you to affect the world in which you live.
