Heavenly living

“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”  “I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of Him who sent me.”  (John :38)  What is life like in heaven?  What are the habits and values of that glorious community?  It is a question that must be answered before we can pray the Lord’s prayer with understanding.  Only best clue is the life of Christ.  Having come from Heaven, He is representative of that powerful assembly and how they respond to the will of God.  Consider His commitment to God’s will, the priority He placed on hearing the voice of the Father, his courage in carrying it out.   To pray for God’s will to be done on earth in the manner that it is done in heaven is to pray for Christ-likeness.  Our priority and passion and privilege will be the will of God.
