On Our Doorstep
God’s redemptive rule and its effects are as close to us as our hand is on the end of our arm. E.S. Jones says that “the Kingdom of God is at hand” (Mt.4:17) means that the Kingdom is on our doorstep. In Rev.3 Jesus is standing on the doorstep of the church of Laodicea knocking to gain entrance to the church of “the people rule.” His rule is on our doorstep but would be far more profitable it it was inside.
