Kingdom of god
The sacrifices consented to for its coming cannot have been in vain
January 31st 2013
In all the centuries that Christians have repeated after Jesus, ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven’, how many men and women have prayed for the coming of the kingdom of God! And not only have they prayed, they have worked, they have devoted all their energies to it, and some, like Jesus, have shed their blood. Can all those sacrifices have been made in vain? In certain regions of the universe there exists somewhere a reservoir that is continually being filled with the forces and currents that those thousands of sincere, ardent beings have sent out into space. One day, this reservoir will be full; it will overflow and take everything with it like a huge tidal wave. We must think of this reservoir, so that we always feel supported in our work for the coming of the kingdom of God on earth.
