Do We Love Like Jesus?

For those new to Creekwood, each Advent we invite a mixture of staff and laity of all ages to bless us with their devotional thoughts to a specific question. You’ll notice we are starting at “Day 2” because Day 1 was Sunday, and the message can be experienced in worship (in person and online). I hope these devotionals bless you each day, and help you envision the presence of Christ fully into your life.

The question this year:

“What do you think of when you hear the expression ‘Kingdom of God'”

The kingdom of God could range from a special person in your life, to your home on Earth, to your church home. The kingdom of God can look like many things to different people, but for me when I think of the kingdom of God, I think Heaven would be the kingdom of God because it is where God lives.

In Luke 10:11 Jesus preaches to his disciples. He told them ”The kingdom of God has come near you.” But how would the disciples know what it meant?. What I think Jesus meant is that they were near the King of Heaven, Jesus. I also think Jesus would be the kingdom of God. I think this because he will be your friend forever. He is kind, loves you, and will always listen to your prayers.

The kingdom of God can look different for many people, but everybody can have peace and comfort with Jesus in Heaven. So, Heaven can be a place on Earth when you have Jesus in your heart.!!!!
