The kingdom of heaven is not a pipe dream but God’s dream for humankind. Jesus taught us to pray for God’s Kingdom to come on earth. He painted for us a picture of what life is like in the kingdom of heaven in the Beatitudes. To live in the kingdom of heaven we need to confront and overcome the sins of lust, anger, envy, greed, acedia, pride and gluttony as well as the demons of guilt and fear. The Beatitudes are to prepare the soil of our hearts so that we can bear the fruit of the Spirit - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility and self-control. Like the alcoholics on their journey to recovery, we are on a journey to the kingdom of heaven. The Twelve Steps of the Alcoholics Anonymous can be condensed into the four disciplines of remembering God, examining our hearts, submitting to God and trusting God so that we can have a relationship with God as our Heavenly Father, our Shepherd of Love as well as our Divine Lover. This book is a reflection of the author’s journey of living in God’s Loving Embrace.
