Kingdom of Heaven

Gentlemen,

Here’s a verse I have been stewing over for the past two weeks:

“The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: ‘The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.'”   Rev 11:15

I love this verse as a simple proclamation of the truth of our Father’s total victory and Jesus’ lordship over the earth. Sometimes, I need something this short and direct to remind me what’s true, and what’s most important. As those of you who are 1Ls will discover at finals (and those of you who aren’t can attest to), playing for keeps in grad school (test time) quickly becomes all consuming (hence my failure to send out he word of the day until now!). In the face of such pressure, I think it helps to try and maintain focus on simple and direct truths that help forge eternal perspective.
