What if it all depends on us? What if the coming of God’s kingdom depends on the bride’s willingness to be prepared. We are being knit together with one another to become a holy temple and a dwelling place for Christ. Can we postpone the reconciliation of Christ with his home (the bride, the church) by being unwilling to be knit together to form his home. Eph 2:21-22. Perhaps God is giving us more of a part than we realize. We must be purposed about being more like Jesus. We must be purposed about being more intimate with Him, with our spouse, with our friends. For me, this is obeying God in the small revelations He gives me about what it means to obey Him. He is showing me how to obey. If I obey, I am speeding along the coming of His kingdom. We are supposed to believe the Kingdom is coming in our life time. We are supposed to look for it, wait for it, believe it is coming and seek it out. ("Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who is a merchant seeking fine pearls, who having found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it." Matthew 13:45-46 ) (The virgins with the oil lamps awaiting the coming King - Matthew 25:1-13). We should want it so bad, that we seek opportunities to obey, and when we don’t, it grieves the process of His coming Kingdom. We have been waiting on God, but is He waiting on us?
