The true POWER of our discipleship in the Kingdom of God

Dallas Willard and NT Wright both ignite my soul for so much more in this life. They do it in a quiet way that doesn’t sound nearly intrusive as others I’ve heard… yet it rings true somehow.

Ortberg in his book Soul Keeping quotes Dallas as saying this:

Your eternal destiny is not cosmic retirement; it is to be part of a tremendously creative project, under unimaginably splendid leadership, on an inconceivably vast scale, with ever increasing cycles of fruitfulness and enjoyment — that is the prophetic vision which ‘eye has not seen and ear has not heard.’

I know. I had to read that several times. Now, every time I read it I begin to weep. Literally.

The Kingdom is powerful and I am so unaware.

N T Wright in Simply Jesus invited readers to reread the Book of Acts to understand “the fact that through Jesus’s followers God is establishing his kingdom and the rule of Jesus himself on earth as in heaven.”

So… why does it not look that way?

Because we don’t “get it.” 

Lord! Help us to finally GET IT!
