The Kingdom of Heaven.
In todays DISIPLE II Bible study, we studied about God's Kingdom. This is what I learned.
Matthew 13: 44-50 - 18: 23-35 - 20: 1-16
God's kingdom is like a hidden treasure far more valuable than the finest pearls ever.It is so desirable to me that I would be willing to give up EVERYTHING - and I mean - EVERYTHING to be given permission to enter.
To reside there some day is the GOAL to end all Goals.
Knowing that I'm not now, never had been or never will be totaly deserving to ever step one toe over the threshold of so fine a place, yet will be given permission to enter, totaly on the unconditional love, mercy, and forgiveness of God himself, is mind bogeling. Yet, to follow his lead. To do His will - to gain entrence - will be my goal.
And I will rejoice in the fact that regardless if I am the very first in line or in the middle or at the very end, that everyone in that line, that enters - will gain enterence - all for the same price. GOD'S GRACE !
