Your Will Be Done

pray_7523c“This petition does not merely express agreement with God’s decree or resignation to his will, but rather the longing that what God requires from man may be done on earth as it is in heaven. At present God’s will as expressed in his commandments is not being done on account of all that op­poses God on earth. Both re­demption and ethics are im­plied in this ‘will of God.’” (Herman Ridderbos, The Coming of the Kingdom, p. 247).
