The Reign of God as opportunity at hand. Comments to: adebelak@redeemerluth.com

The Reign of God as opportunity at hand will take our hand and simply walk along with us through this day. We may not change how we are moving and living - but that Reign in all of its power is with us - an opportunity at hand. We are not condemned for walking away and living contrary to the gift of God's Reign. God's presence stay - abides - remains - is eternally available. There may come a time when we step into it. Maybe we will not even realize we are walking within the life it offers. At other times, we may make an intentional move that seems to be in line with the vision of God's Reign. In those moments, we do need others to tell us that we are in the middle of it all or to tell us we may be missing the mark. I think there is always a bit of a tension in the air when we are handed opportunities to act. Together we prayerfully ask that we will know we are free to move here and there within an embrace of grace and love that holds all of these opportunities for new life. 

O God of New Life and All Hopefulness, here we go for another day in your Reign. Walk with us just as you promise. Amen.
