King Jesus taught His disciples, and us, to call on His Father to restore Kingdom rule to the earth. He wanted it as it had been (briefly) in the Garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve were managing the newly established outpost of Heaven. In the Garden, just as in the Kingdom of Heaven, God's living Word was the law of the land. Life was good. The word "crisis" was not in their vocabulary. Jesus left us a perfect example of how to cover all bases. He stated: "In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven... " To this day, as people voluntarily put themselves under His lordship, they can become citizens of the Kingdom. Over time, they came to learn the culture of Heaven. They can learn God's principles, and they can learn to receive His help to obey Him. In places across the globe they too can establish new outposts of the Kingdom. You and I can be a part of this grand restoration effort.
You will notice that Jesus didn't once mention "Christian" in His prayer. That is because we are not "Christian" but saints in God's Kingdom, not a religious group called "Christianity". You will find that quite a few of those who wear the banner Christian, choose to obey God's written constitution only when it suites them, and when there isn't much pressure against what they believe. But a citizen of the Kingdom will live and die by the Word of God, regardless of the consequences. Because that is who they are. The ambassador Paul put it perfectly. So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
While the word "crisis"will remain in the vocabulary of the citizens of Heaven as long as they live on this troubled world, the word will have a redemptive ring to it. The same "management mandate" applies to us as 21st century citizens of the Kingdom.
Remember, our faith isn't what we believe, it is who we are.
