( Pana@r TKese Ttfin#s ) in your Yfeart ( :By Dennis Justison The kingdom of God is mysterious yet present and very real. We don't experience the Kingdom in its fullness but at the same time it manifests itself powerfully. In fact, Scripture says, "For the Kingdom of God is not in word but in power," 1 Corinthians 4:20. Some people associate this power with noise, fireworks, miracles, and events that generate emotion and excitement. Church can become like a gas station or an entertainment center where we fill up every week. Often people come to me and tell me of their God experiences. "God told me this," or "He did that!" Far from me to judge, but when the ex- perience glorifies the person and brings attention to himself, it is harder for me to believe. The experiences of God that are easier for me to be- lieve are ones which cause the person to become more humble, rever- ent, and loving towards all. I can more easily trust that God is a part of it when I see people laying down their lives in sacrifice for another. Take a family that has decided that one parent will stay home with the kids instead of working to make more money. Or a person who refuses to purchase a company's clothing because they are made in sweatshops. Or the person who is treated unjustly, yet their response is to pray and to be kind rather than resort to verbal or physical violence. For me, the God experience is quiet. I am reminded of the story of Elijah in 1 Kings chapter 19. God was not in the great wind that shat- tered rocks, nor the earthquake, nor in the great fire. He was in the nearly imperceptible gentle breeze. Similarly, there is a story from the desert Fathers that hints at the quietness and mystery of the Kingdom: One day some men came to see Abba Anthony, Abba Joseph was with them. Testing them,Anthony suggested a text from the Scriptures and he asked the men what it meant. Each, beginning with the youngest, gave his opinion. To each one the old man said, "You have not understood it." Finally, he said to Joseph, "How do you explain this saying?" Abba Joseph replied, "I do not know." Then Abba An- thony said, "Indeed, Joseph has found the way, for he has said 'I do not understand." This story is like 1 Corinthians 8:2, "And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know." The Kingdom is here and there. It is now and not yet. It draws us and yet tantalizes us. We want to control it but in the end we cannot. We want church services to give it to us, but they cannot, for "the wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but you cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes," John 3:8. There is something about stillness, quiet, and reverence. Mother Teresa said, "Both humility and prayer grow from an ear, mind, and tongue that have lived in silence with God, for in the silence of the heart God speaks." Psalm 46 says "Be still and know that I am God." Perhaps you have had a God experience. I'd suspect it was in a mo- ment of quiet, probably during a time of chaos in your life when things were falling apart. Then it was as if the eye of the hurricane passed over you and you noticed a peace and calm and you knew. What you knew, you couldn't say in words, but you knew you were touched and you were changed. If you haven't had any experience like this, but would like one, try find some quiet time each day. Listen and look. He ~here. He is now. Peace be with you.
