“Your Kingdom come on earth as in heaven.”
I’m struck by image of putting on Christ (like a garment), this morning. It is used elsewhere in St. Paul’s writing (this portion of our reflection is from Galatians 3, as I pointed out last week), where the saint draws a more complete picture of the believer taking off their old self and then putting on Christ (Ephesians 4:22-24). We might reflect, this morning, on our own clothing. Wolf in sheep’s clothing? Emperor in new (and revealing) clothes? Repentant sinner, wrapped in the righteousness of Christ? As His identity becomes our identity more and more – as we put on Christ – how, then, does this bring His Kingdom on earth as in heaven?
