Advent—Anticipating the Coming of the Kingdom of Heaven

Of course, the kingdom of heaven is here. I’m sure it actually existed long before Jesus. But when Jesus came, he pointed everyone explicitly toward it.

What have we learned about the kingdom of heaven?

It starts out small but grows to encompass all.

We can choose to participate or not.

We choose not by what we say but by how we act.

When we enter the kingdom of heaven, we are rewarded with a better life–love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

That is something to celebrate.
