As It Is in Heaven
Heaven is a perfect place.
Why this difference between heaven and earth since both are from the hand of our perfect Creator?
The reason for earth’s woes is sin. Every evil on earth springs from sin: “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” (Romans 5:12).
Sin is the reason for every hospital and cemetery. It is the cause of every prison and chain. Sin enslaves while promising liberty. It offers pleasure and gives pain. Sin has caused the great chasm between heaven and earth.
Is there really any profit in praying that the Father’s will be done here as it is in heaven?
This is a prayer for the coming Kingdom of Christ… the Millennium. When the King returns, the Father’s will will be carried out all over the earth “…for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea” (Isaiah 11:9).
Discouraged with world conditions?
A better day is coming. Our Lord will come again.
