The Kingdom of God Is Near to Us

As we pray the Orthodox Prayer to the Holy Spirit, this truth is communicated to us, "O Heavenly King, O Comforter, the Spirit of Truth Who art in all places and fillest all things."  As Christians, do we live in the truth that God is in all places and fills all things; that He permeates everything in in every aspect of our lives?  Or, do we live a life that somehow compartmentalizes God; a life that believes in the experience of God when we are doing the "Christian things" such as prayer, worship, or ministry; but not so much at other times in the most mundane moments of our lives?  The Incarnation brought the Kingdom of Heaven to earth for the experience of mankind unto the salvation of our souls.  God is never distant and there is never a moment of our lives when we cannot fellowship and experience God and all of the benefits of His Kingdom now manifest in the earth.  The purpose of this series is to assist us in living the true Christian life where the Kingdom of God is near to us.

When our Lord Jesus Christ took bread and wine and blessed it, He told His disciples that whenever they were to gather together they were to "do this in remembrance of me."  It was no mere intellectual or mental exercise that He was asking them to do.  Rather, He was saying that when you do this and every time you do this I will be there in your midst.  

When God's people gather together for Eucharist, there Christ and His Kingdom are made manifest for all to experience.  In this series we start with this idea regarding Christian worship, but we must also look further.  It is our Lord's desire that we take Christ and the Kingdom made manifest living our lives in such a way in this life that in all we do and everywhere we go, the King and His Kingdom are made manifest for the salvation of the world as He lives through us, His Church.

The Gospel of St. John, being written some 30 - 40 years after the other three Gospels, contains some of the most wondrous theological revelations about the life of our Lord Jesus Christ.  It is so important that we take into ourselves this theology which has been passed down from generation to generation since the inception of the Church at Pentecost.

 

Theology is defined by the Church as the expressed revelation of God to man revealing Who God is and all that He has done for the salvation of the world.  We will study the Gospel of St. John reflecting on these truths.  For without the revelation of God as to His very nature, we cannot hope to know Him and by the light of His countenance shining upon us be made whole.
