For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of
the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
-- Habakkuk 2:14, New International Version
What a thought. This reminds me of a quote, I have
attributed to Shakespeare(if you know better, let me know. I think
it could be from Dante's Inferno) regarding heaven and hell. For
that matter, the Kingdom of God. "[Hell] is the full knowledge
of the love of God, and then the lack thereof." If that is the
case, then I believe the author would go on to say the Kingdom of God is the
Knowledge and Presence of God's Love, and Peace.
Hear the Good News, Christ
tells us the Kingdom of God is around us, within us. By this, I believe
him to mean wherever God reigns, The Kingdom is present. Christ came so
we might know the Kingdom of God. Ask God to reign over your life, to
give you inspiration and love that you might share today.
Almighty God, please lead me to someone who needs to know your
peace and love. Allow me to reach out in that love so we both might
experience Your Reign in our life. Please bless your servants all around
the world as they share your message with others. Finally, keep my eyes
open so I might see this glorious promise when it becomes fully realized.
In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
