On earth as in heaven

God desires people to be healed.

Jesus helped the blind to see, the lame to walk, and the deaf to hear.

Jesus cleansed lepers, raised the dead, and restored the infirm. He forgave sinners and included those who were being shunned.

All these things, he said, were signs of God's kingdom on earth.

Jesus taught his followers to pray, "God, let your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as in heaven." Then he taught his followers what they could do to help.

It's time for us to get more practice bringing God's kingdom to earth!
