Goodness Of God

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'”

I believe the kingdom of God, or heaven, is anything we want it to be. I used to think that there would be massive tubs of ice cream or a giant football field. I think now it is a place where we can talk to God whenever we need to. There might be this globe thing that we look through where we can see our loved ones down on earth and hear their prayers.

In order to get to the Kingdom of God, we need to make Jesus the King of our lives. When we make Jesus the King of our lives you will be happy and love to go to church. If you are feeling down, you can just pray, and he will be there.

Jesus fills all the requirements of being the King of this kingdom. He has never sinned, loves everyone no matter what, will always be there for us, and rose to the heavens. He deserves to be the King because he is the only person with all those traits.

This really shows me that the kingdom of God is amazing and the most beautiful place. It is juts full of happiness. That is why Jesus is the king of my life and what I envision the kingdom of God to look like.
