Gods Kingdom (Matthew 6 v 16 )

'Your kingdom come',  It is Christ who defined Gods kingdom as not of this world,( John 18 v 36 ),so what are we asking when we pray ,for Gods kingdom to come?It is W. Barclay who links,'your will be done' together with Gods Kingdom,it is a spiritual kingdom,that needs no earthly Parliaments ,no earthly kings or queens,it is not a kingdom that can be brought in by earthly force,we can never force anyone into Gods kingdom,at the point of a sword or a gun.It is an everlasting Kingdom   ,that can never be destroyed,though many will try,It is Gods Kingdom,and it is Christ who is King of Kings, who has been given all power and authority,and by the eternal Spirit reigns in the heart and lives of everyone who has entered that kingdom,by a new birth, by faith in Jesus as Saviour.Whose sole aim is to do Gods will in every aspect of their lives,the challenge is to follow in the footsteps of Jesus,who perfectly obeyed Gods will.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         'Your will be done''                                                                                                                                              in me.
