I watched Remember the Titians tonight and was once again impressed with the film. It got me to thinking about the kingdom of God and that will be like. Paul says this, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” How Revolutionary was it for Paul to say that in his day! WOW! The amazing thing (and little sad) is that it is still revolutionary to say something like that today. We still fight the battle of equality; race, religion, gender, working class, status, etc. Equality is a taste of heaven we should be establishing on earth. Men like Martin Luther King Jr. and others understood this and fought for it! By his actions MLK Jr. was bringing heaven to earth. He was answer with his life the Lord’s prayer, “thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth and it is being done in heaven.” I am talking to a group of middle school students about this tomorrow and my prayer is that they will be able to grab a hold of this concept and start to live lives that bring heaven to earth.
