I have good news!
The Kingdom of God is here!
It’s not just later, after your body dies. It’s right now!
This is what it looks like:
People love each other for real
People turn the other cheek
People pray for their enemies
People are not judgmental about the blindness of others
People are delighted to serve other people
Meek and gentle people, people who are sad about the way things are, people who are seekers, people who show mercy and make peace, people who are maligned for doing the right thing — the type of people who don’t “fit” into the world — these people are blessed in God’s kingdom!
If you could find a place like this, wouldn’t you leave everything you have to live there?
The good news is that if you look for it, you will find it!
Hint: Jesus points the way.
