 In what we know as the Lord’s Prayer, we say these familiar words: “Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” But do we fully understand what it is that we’re praying for when we say these words? This week, we continue to dig into what these words might mean for us as we offer our prayer to God.

Last week, we discussed the idea that a Kingdom needs a King, yet Jesus is a King who is rejected, despised, and ultimately killed. He wasn’t the King they expected, or wanted, because Jesus is a King not of this world, but of God’s Kingdom. So while we focus on Jesus as the Royal Son of God, his throne is a Roman cross. This week we’ll talk about what it means to be ‘blessed’ from Matthew 5:1-11 – the Beatitudes as we know them. Then, we must recognize that God’s Kingdom looks very different to the world in which we live. You might even say it’s an “upside down” Kingdom….but whose Kingdom is really upside down? Finally, we’ll look at why Jesus came in the first place – to proclaim the coming of God’s Kingdom that is near, and at hand…and we are called to participate with God in the building of His Kingdom here on earth, as it is in heaven. That might just mean having the same mind as Christ, and lowering ourselves, sacrificing ourselves, and giving of ourselves, so that God’s Kingdom can be on earth, as it is in heaven.
