1. We are part of His Kingdom

Last week I spoke about us having a wonderful, amazing Hero like Jesus in our lives. He stands ready to bless and to help. He has opened up the gateways to Heaven for us. He has paved the way in order for us to have wonderful fellowship with our Father. He has given us access into His Kingdom and what a glorious Kingdom it is! And because His Kingdom is so wonderful, I have decided to start a new series on Kingdom living. I look forward to what we will learn together about His Kingdom and what He has available for us on a daily basis in our lives.

Today I would like to start off and proclaim to you that you are part of God's Kingdom NOW already, not just someday, but now. And this statement has a profound impact on how we live our daily lives. And because it has the potential to turn your daily live upside down, let us start with Scriptural evidence as we know that the Word is always true and filled with His life!

"For indeed, the Kingdom of God is within you." Luke 17:21

"He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the Kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins." Colossians 1:13, 14

"...that you should walk worthy of God who calls you into His own Kingdom and glory." 1 Thessalonians 2:12

"If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you." John 15:19

We are not part of this world anymore, but God has delivered us from the power of darkness and carried us into the Kingdom of His Son. His Kingdom now lives and breathes within us. That in itself is such an intense statement that I need to repeat it again, God's Kingdom now lives and breathes within us. And because it does, there are so many things that are true of us. I have written it all down and will discuss it with you over the next couple of months.

But for now, meditate on the knowing that you are part of His Kingdom, part of a Kingdom with a King reigning supreme. He looks after His Kingdom and He protects His Kingdom. You can live your life knowing that you are looked after and protected. You don't even need to stress about the circumstances in your country, because you are part of a Kingdom so much bigger and greater than anything this world has ever seen. You are part of the best nation that has ever roamed this earth. You are not South African, Australian, and American; no you are first and foremost a child of the living God, a citizen of Heaven where His love knows no boundaries, where His love conquers all.

Rejoice! You are part of something that will last forever. Walk with your head held high, nothing is supposed to get you down, because as part of His Kingdom, you have all the benefits and all the gifts of Heaven to your disposal. Come and dwell in His Presence in His Kingdom, make your home there, focus all your thoughts and energies towards Him. Then you cannot go wrong and no obstacle can come in your way!

Father we rejoice that we are part of Your Kingdom, now already! Thank you for the privilege, thank you for Your saving grace, Your unending love. We want to dwell in Your Presence; we want to make our home with You. Then we can be rest assured that nothing formed against us shall prosper and our walkways will always lead to Your goodness. Amen
