His kingdom in me

 To teach us to pray, Jesus must teach us what to desire. “You want me to teach you to pray? pray for kingdom to come in this world!”, says the Lord.   Ask that the order that exists is heaven, without sin, without anything contradictory to the will of God will set up on the earth.  It is God’s promise.  It is something that must come gradually and progressively into the life of every child of God.   This morning in worship, we will think together about Peter who desired to serve God, but was a dismal failure so long as he trusted in himself.  Christ’s mercy to Peter was to answer his desire by teaching him a new life.  “Fear not, little flock, for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” (Luke 12:32)  Friend, do you desire the kingdom?  If you do, then you can count on God’s help!  Will you ask  Christ to  rescue and restore you as He did Peter?
