MacDonald: when the kingdom is come

Thursday, April 11, 2019
    Commemoration of George Augustus Selwyn, first Bishop of New Zealand, 1878
    Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
    —Matthew 13:45-46 (KJV)
    The kingdom of heaven is not come even when God’s will is our law; it is fully come when God’s will is our will.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), David Elginbrod, vol. 2 [1863], Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1871, p. 194 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 13:45-46; 12:49-50; Mark 3:35; Rom. 8:29; 12:1-2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, transform my mind.
