When the Kingdom of Heaven Comes Near

Ask anybody who’s been on a mission trip, and they will say, “It was a blessing. I’ll never be the same.” Talk with them long enough and you may hear about the hard work, the heat, the snoring in the room, the early hours, the disappointments and the difficulties. But for most, this is not the main thing. It is overshadowed by the ways the Kingdom of Heaven comes near.

It’s not just about mission trips. As disciples, we are summoned and sent each day when we first open our eyes and swing our legs over the side of the bed. The question is not “Does Jesus need me today?” He does. The question is “What will I say and do to make God’s healing, transforming presence real in my home, outside my front door, and down the street?” Then, stay alert for and find joy in the Kingdom of Heaven come near!
