Here and now

The Kingdom of God is already among you (Luke 17:21; NLT).

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of garden plants; it grows into a tree, and birds come and make nests in its branches (Matthew 13:31-2; NLT).

The kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17; NLT).

*************************************

 

The Kingdom of God
Is here and now –

Not pie in the sky,
Not after our death;

And it’s up to us
To help it grow –

Though offering love
To all, without exception.

Standard
Prayer

We’re dying

A wise person thinks a lot about death (Ecclesiastes 7:4; NLT).

Teach us to realise the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom (Psalm 90:12; NLT).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

…………………………………………..

 

Lord,
We’re dying –

Sick or well,
Death comes a little closer
To us all
Each day.

Please help us
To fix our hearts on you
Until life’s end,

When we will reunite
With you
For evermore.

We are one

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).

You also are complete through your union with Christ (Colossians 2:10; NLT).

You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

 

Lord,
When we are one
With you,
That’s all we need
To help us through
The ups and downs
Of life.
