Lord's Prayer Meditations: “On Earth as It Is in Heaven”

“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”

Meditation 4: “On Earth as It Is in Heaven”

Again we are introduced to “heaven”. Heaven is the place where God reigns with unquestioned authority (Psa 2:1-4). This same kingdom authority was made manifest on earth in Jesus Christ (Matt 28:18-20; Eph 1:20-22).

This kingdom on earth is found in the salvific work of God (Eph 2:4-6). This work in believers mirrors the work of Christ. We become the kingdom on earth by becoming obedient saints. We make earth more like heaven by our faithfulness and obedience. We are to pray that God would work to raise more faithful servants and bring His kingdom to earth for His glory in heaven.
