What does it mean to pray "Thy Kingdom Come"?
The Lord's Prayer is one of the best known prayers of Christianity. It is said daily by millions of Christians and has been prayed every Sunday by Christians from the earliest times. And although many people say the Lord's Prayer, very few people know what it means. One line in particular that most of us don't understand is the words "they Kingdom come." This prayer that asks for God's Kingdom to come to earth is at the very heart of the Christian faith. If we don't understand what the Kingdom of God is, and if we don't long for the Kingdom to come to earth, then we really don't know what Christianity is all about.
So, this week at Good Shepherd, we'll be looking at one line from the Lord's Prayer "thy Kingdom Come" to begin our series on God's Kingdom over the next couple weeks.
