The kingdom of God started long ago, and it continues today, and it will continue tomorrow and on into the future. Though we can’t see it in full, we are caught up in the story. Today, we live as both citizens and strangers, hoping and praying for the kingdom to come. We live in the “already but not yet,” prisoners of hope in this shadow kingdom, all while knowing it is not our true home. Something better is coming. God’s perfect kingdom is coming.
