Could it be that all the fairy tales we grew up loving, all the epic love stories, and all the heroic battles have taken their inspiration from the story of the kingdom of God? God has been telling a fantastic love story, a great adventure, from before time began. The King of the world chose us, He came knocking, and He’s calling us toward Him. Have we grown up too much to see it anymore? Do we still stand in awe of it? Do we even believe?

I think what must be revived most of all in the church is our ability to think like a child…to believe like a child…to see like a child. Disneyland is called “The happiest place on earth.” It’s such a great slogan. I think it should be the description of the kingdom of God. This life will never bring perfect happiness, but in living with God’s kingdom in mind, we can find a truly happy place.

We are called to bring the kingdom here to earth. We do that through our spiritual act of worship…living life as unto Him every day. Oh, that we would never settle for a touch but be ever immersed in such a simple faith. May we bring the kingdom of God here and find in it the happiest place on earth as it is in heaven.
