Heaven is for NOW

Yesterday I introduced the message of Jesus in our study of the Bible. I said it focused on the Kingdom of God. In a nutshell, Jesus' taught that he brought the kingdom of God from heaven to earth and was inviting people...all enter his kingdom. Now. Right then. Not when they died.

In other words, Jesus was allowing people to enjoy a foretaste of heaven here on earth by following him. Interesting thought. Maybe you've never thought of Christianity that way before. It's actually a radical thought...that heaven is now and our purpose as followers of Jesus is to create a community that looks like heaven...just like Jesus told us to pray...Your kingdom come. Your will be done...on earth as it is in heaven.
