We continue our preaching series on the Our Father. Today we explore the first and second petitions: "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." What does it mean to say "Thy kingdom come?" What are we asking for when we beg for His kingdom to come? It has to be an individual petition. I have to first beg the kingdom to come into my own life. Then His kingdom can spread on earth. Then and only then when I have allowed His kingdom to come into my own life I can ask for His will to be done.
