As it is in Heaven
Matthew 6:10
Your kingdom come, Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

1. The will of God is perfectly done in heaven because it is done with the unbroken, uninterrupted sense of the presence of God. We must try to took on things as God looks at them.

2. There is in the celestial world a wide diversity of gifts and operations. The seraph's fire is combined with the cherub's strength.

3. There is war even in heaven to carry out the will of God in casting out evil from the world. "Michael and his angels fought against the dragon." Courage, self-denial, discipline, are the gifts by which victories are won.

4. It is a world of spirits — the spiritual unites and vivifies the whole. The hosts which really govern the world are the thoughts and consciences of men.

5. It is beneficial.

(Dean Stanley.)
