Lord's Day 48 Heidelberg Catechism

Lord's Day 48

Scripture Readings: Psalm 110; 1 Corinthians 15:20-28

Q. 123.Which is the second petition?

A."Thy kingdom come"; that is, rule us so by thy word and Spirit,that we may submit ourselves more and more to thee; preserve and increase thy church; destroy the works of the devil, and all violence which would exalt itself against thee; and also all wicked counsels devised against thy holy word; till the full perfection of thy kingdom take place, wherein thou shalt be all in all.

For reflection and study:
Is the kingdom of God here now or is it still to come?
