 Youth Time Alone with God

 What happens when heaven invades earth?

Sins get forgiven.

Outcasts get taken in.

Nobodies become somebodies—the poor in spirit become blessed; Simon becomes Peter the Rock.

       Human beings receive divine purpose: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel.”

       The cross seemed to put all such talk at an end. But then came the story of the resurrection, in which the ultimate invasion of earth by heaven was said to have happened.

To the great question behind this book “who is this man?” came at last—with difficulty, with reluctance, with great joy—an answer. He must be, people said, something more than just a man. Humanity and divinity somehow intersect in this one man. He became like us so that we might become like him.

       All of the wonders that we have been exploring through this book turned out to find their fullest expression in him: all roads meet; all threats are woven together in the tapestry of this life.

       Heaven is now overlapping earth. Anybody who wants to get in on it can. People invite this man into their lives, and heaven starts invading earth through them. Paul said, “You yourselves are God’s temple.” In other words, Jesus woke something up, started something new, so that now heaven can invade earth through ordinary human beings.

       God wants his will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. God wants a new map of the world. It doesn’t require money, degrees, status, looks, talents, connections, or clout. In fact, those probably get in the way as often as they help. Anyone can be part of this.
