‘The Kingdom All Around Us’

As you go, make this proclamation: “The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

  • Matthew 10:7

Jesus asks his people to share the good news that his reign is imminent. We can lift our gaze into the distance and squint at the horizon to see the fullness of God’s glory coming close. We can open our eyes wide to see that the peace and justice that Christ proclaimed are nearby.

When the hungry are fed, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

When anguish is heard, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

When life is protected, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

When illness is cured, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

When truth is told, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

When hurts are healed, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

When compassion reigns, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
