Kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of Righteousness, peace, love and the Holy Spirit.
Righteousness – Righteousness of God is found in man. Its written that the one who had no sin, became sin for us so that in him we become the righteousness of God. We are the righteousness of God. The old things are gone and everything has become new. God doesn’t look at your past life when you come to him with open heart and sincere desire to serve him. He accepts you the way you are, cleanses you with his word and strengthens you with Holy Spirit so that you may not go back to the old way of life.
If you are in Christ, you have become a new creation. God has cancelled the unfavourable record of your life by nailing it on cross. In return he has given you freedom. Receive this freedom today and claim that “I am the righteousness of God created in Christ Jesus to do great works that the Lord has appointed me to do for his praise and glory.”
Peace – Jesus says, “I give you my own peace. I don’t give you the way this world does. Don’t let your hearts be troubled.” When Jesus spoke these words the power to receive his peace has been imparted to our inner being. We can receive the peace of Jesus just by saying, “Jesus, I receive your peace today.”
Kingdom of God can’t be established where the peace of Christ is not present. The peace attracts all blessings – both in this world and the world to come. Peace is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. Pray that the peace of Christ that is everlasting never leave you. Guard your peace by not letting unworthy words come out of your mouth. Guard your peace by not focusing on worthless ideas and the things that are contrary to the nature of God. Ask your divine helper Holy Spirit to help you in this endeavour.
May the peace of Jesus fill all of us today and never leave us.
Love – Love is greatest of all. God is love and Jesus Christ is the manifestation of God’s love for his creation. Jesus told his disciples that the greatest commandment is to love your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength and love others as you love yourself. Jesus prayed in John 17 that we may receive the same love as father has for Jesus so that we know him better.
Jesus, our High priest, is still praying for us. Let us be filed with the love of God today!!
Holy Spirit – Kingdom of God is not just in our talk but manifestation of God’s glory. When the Lord sent people to preach the gospel, he gave them power to do miracles and wonders to show that the Kingdom of God has arrived. Holy Spirit is the power of the living God. We should be diligent to be filled with the Holy Spirit so that our preaching may not just be empty words but will have an abundance of miracles and wonders.
Holy Spirit if free for all. Ask the father to send his holy Spirit in Jesus name today. Jesus said, “If you know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more your heavenly father will give Holy Spirit to those who ask him.” Ask and we shall receive. I pray that we be filled with the Mighty Holy Spirit today, right at this very moment so that we could present the full gospel of the Kingdom of God!
