The intersection of God making all things new and our right-now reality forms the heart of the Christian life. In a broken world, we long for the certainty and restoration of eternity. As believers, we are called to thoughtfully reflect the resurrection to the world, joining in His work of restoration. Yet even in our best intentions to join Him, we can be easily overwhelmed by the places where we want to experience restoration right now.
In this second part of our reading plan, we encourage you to pause after each day’s reading to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these areas shape your prayers today.
In today’s Scripture reading, we’ll read about the kingdom of God and Jesus’s instructions that we should seek to see God’s ways carried out on earth as they are in heaven.
After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about God’s kingdom coming to earth as it is in heaven. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.
