And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
We struggle between heaven and earth. It is God's heavenly kingdom we long for. But our flesh is tied to the earth.
As sure as gravity holds our feet to the ground, our flesh, marred by sin, lusts after the carnal things.
If in doubt, see what happens when someone takes something of yours.
Jesus overcame the world. He did nothing but what He saw the Father do. Looking up, he let go of the desires of the flesh and nailed sin to the cross.
In this season, look up. Seek the Lord and see what HE is saying and telling you to do. Read the Word that it soak deep into your soul. For we who are born again, are born of the Spirit. We have a heavenly kingdom and King.
Let go your grasp on the things of this world and spread your arms wide, hands open, to praise the Almighty. The One True God.
Our Father is in heaven.
