The Kingdom of God – Part 1

IMG_5221-wide

How often as you’ve read the Gospels have you placed “The Kingdom of God’ into a Heavenly realm or timeframe; in other words, into the sweet bye-n-bye when we all get to Heaven? Even the Pharisees in Jesus’ day had problems with the “when” factor, but Jesus addressed their dilemma in Luke 17:20-21. He said the when isn’t here or there but God’s Kingdom is within you. The Kingdom of God within you tag transcends time and enables you to see and understand God’s available power to each person who has ever lived, who is living now, and who will yet be born.

Let’s get a deeper understand of the Kingdom of God and how that is relevant in our life today. Jesus said it is within us, but unless we understand what is in us, how can we operate in the Kingdom of God?

Let’s begin first with the definition that the Kingdom of God is where the rule and reign of Christ and His finished work is manifested. As Pastor George Belobaba says (Scripture Nuggets), it is the presence of the King ruling and reigning in people as well as the corporate body of Christ and that it is not a matter of geography because it is God in us and with us.

Understanding more about God and His interest in you should get you excited. God’s Kingdom is ALL that God is, ALL that Jesus is—everything that God has ordained and planned for His children. There isn’t a shortage in Heaven of ANYTHING of God’s Kingdom. There shouldn’t be a shortage in our spiritual lives of anything either. If we come up short, we’re coming up short on our understanding and vision of the totality of God’s Kingdom operating in us.

What’s included in the Kingdom of God? We’ll look more into that aspect next time, but today rejoice that God’s Kingdom is within you.
