When asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God was coming, Jesus responded by saying the Kingdom was already among them (Luke 17:20-21). We have found that Jesus brought the Kingdom by modeling it in the way He lived, and by proclaiming and demonstrating it. But what does this have to do with us?
When you pray, do you ever consider what is on God’s mind and what He would like to see done? Or do you simply show up with a shopping list of what you would like to see done? I wonder if we wouldn’t get a lot further a lot faster if we would put the Lord’s agenda first?
