THE KINGDOM OF GOD
The Kingdom of God is much written about;
the words of Jesus abound in teaching about it.
Yet it is much misunderstood within the churches,
that point to power rather than to service.
This Kingdom is the apex of God's purpose for Creation.
In its detail lies the reason for our living.
Outside its boundaries we are lost and straying.
Only within this Kingdom can we find true happiness,
the fullness of life and the true joy of living.
The ways of the Kingdom reflect care for others
and a desire to meet their need rather than our own.
In the Kingdom, there are no hierarchies or power struggles,
for all desire only to serve another as best they can.
Jealousy and anger are foreign to that Kingdom;
pride and position have no place.
The pathway to that Kingdom
is the Way of Jesus;
the Good News.
