Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them, ‘The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed, nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.” Luke 17:20-21
The kingdom of Heaven has come near – it’s here.
A portable palace contained in a King.
A kingdom not of this world.
Holy Spirit, Holy ground.
Righteousness, peace and joy reign.
Blessed are its citizens.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My Name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:26-27
Prince of Peace, Lord of Lords, King of the Kingdom.
His peace, His kingdom now reside in me.
Wherever I go, I bring the kingdom.
Let me not forget His perfect love.
Not just a hearer but a doer – love in action.
The kingdom of God is not about talk but of power.
Power to heal.
Power to transform and overcome.
Power to save.
The old has passed away.
There is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus.
He forgives inequity and remembers sin no more.
Book of life blots transgressions.
I forget what’s behind me for what lies ahead – an endurance race marked with good works planned just for me.
Hope and a future.
Plans to prosper.
Forgive as I’ve been forgiven.
Lay down every weight, every sin that bogs me down, keeps me from the Lord’s lap.
Take up my cross – the one crafted just for me.
Love God, love others.
Love and truth lived.
