The Reign of God as Coming Forth. Comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Reign of God as Coming Forth makes us look at all things in a new way. Even our encounters with those people we would rather not encounter become events that may bring us into the life of the Reign of God simply Coming Forth to change the way life will move forward. Maybe that is why we are so often told to be in constant prayer. The prayer is simply a state in which we open our lives to how and when the life of God's Reign will indeed cross our path and bid us to follow. I go back to a previous devotion. This prayerfulness may be the awareness and readiness that is often the theme of Advent. So how will those encounters today - with people you would rather not talk - become a bit of the Coming Forth of God's Reign?
O God of New Life and All Hopefulness, open our hearts and minds to your Reign. Amen.
