On Earth as it is in Heaven

I saw this video the other day on Josh Grave’s Blog. It reminded me of something Jesus said in the Lord’s prayer. He said:

“your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.” (Luke 11:2-4)

What’s interesting to me is Jesus doesn’t pray for us to all get to heaven some day. He prays God’s Kingdom will come to earth. That God’s will be done here and now the same way it is done (now) in Heaven. It begs the question, how do we bring God’s kingdom to earth? How do we bring heaven to earth?

I believe this video is a good example of bringing heaven to earth.

When the old man paid for the little boy’s medicine and gave him soup, he brought Heaven (and life) to the the young man. In return the boy does the same, he grows up to be a doctor and helps those in need. We see pictures of the young doctor helping people in the mission field. He not only brings life to his patients, he brings them heaven too.

Heaven on earth.
