Matthew 6:10 - On Earth As It Is In Heaven

In our verse we’re looking at this morning, we see a part of Jesus’s answer to his disciples when they asked him to teach them how to pray.  Jesus teaches them that they should pray for God’s kingdom to come, not referring to our escape from this world into another one, but to God’s sovereign rule coming “on earth as it is in heaven.”  When we come to the picture of the actual end in Revelation 21-22, we find not ransomed souls making their way to a disembodied heaven but rather the new Jerusalem coming down from heaven to earth, uniting the two in a lasting embrace.
