Simply Jesus - Building the Kingdom

This will be short today sorry its a bit late but I had a date in Birmingham today. Edgebaston to be exact. England v South Africa to be exact so an early start kept me from my mac this morning.

Mark 16 v 19 & 20 - Then the Master Jesus, after briefing them, was taken up to heaven, and he sat down beside God in the place of honor. And the disciples went everywhere preaching, the Master working right with them, validating the Message with indisputable evidence.

In the end King Jesus took his rightful place in heaven and his followers started the job of building his kingdom here on earth.

Today at cricket as the day wore on and the people in the Eric Hollis stand consumed more and more beer they became more and more rowdy. A sing song ensued, barmy army, Britannia and the great escape were followed by a very drunk version of William Blakes Hymn - Jerusalem.

It was strange to here a very drunk group sing the line - And was the holy lamb of God!

But it set me thinking that we still have much to do to see:

I will not cease from mental fight
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
'Til we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land

Being Scottish maybe we should change it to Britain but what ever we must do what the disciples did they -"
went everywhere preaching, the Master working right with them, validating the Message with indisputable evidence."
