Acting on what we await (Advent application of The Lord's Prayer)

I found this a striking thought that brings out the implications of Advent,

"Although the kingdom comes, it is also within every Christian heart (Luke 17:20-21). Christians are called and empowered to love unconditionally, without judgment. A manifestation of it would be to show compassion for the current plight of millions of Americans in debt. The kingdom within is also an active lay ministry to address the imbalance now in place so it does not continue to happen to others." Bishop Paul Peter Jesep
