The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field
Do our lives reflect our present reality as "Kingdom people?" Even as God in Christ Jesus accepts us as we are (that amazing grace!) the Holy Spirit seeks to work in us change. The more we embody Christ in our life, the more and deeper we can embody Christ in our life so that Christ may been seen in all we say and do, even and perhaps especially, in the witness of our repentance - that is, our turning from our way, and embracing God's way, the way of selfless love, humble serving, and enduring hope. What would we be willing to give up to live more fully as such a people?
