Let Your Kingdom Come…
From Jurgen Moltmann’s,“The Source of Life, the Holy Spirit and the Theology of Life”
“People who ask for the Holy Spirit to come to us – into our hearts, into the community we live in, and to our earth – don’t want to flee into heaven or to be snatched away into the next world. They have hope for their hearts, their community and this earth. We don’t pray ‘Let us come into your kingdom either.’ We pray ‘Your Kingdom come on earth as in heaven.’ The petition for the coming of the divine Spirit to us frial earthly people implies a great, unbroken affirmation of life.”
The Holy Spirit is something that I don’t have much of a grasp on. We don’t generally don’t spend a whole lot of time talking about this incredibly important part of the Trinitarian God!
