Have you ever wondered about the topic of conversation between Jesus and the disciples during the 40 days before His ascension? He discussed “things concerning the Kingdom of God.” The first petition in the Model Prayer is, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven…” The Kingdom of God refers to the rule of the King. Wherever the King is present, the Kingdom is present.
Where is the King? He is seated at the right hand of the Father. But He is also present through the Holy Spirit in us. One day He will establish His Kingdom on earth when He returns to reclaim the earth. In a very real sense, His Kingdom is present on earth as long as believers are alive. You represent the King! He rules in your heart! You have the Kingdom message.
Live this day in light of the coming Kingdom of God on earth! The “kingdom of men” will pass away but the Kingdom of God is eternal. Conduct yourselves as a member of His Kingdom.
Surrender to the rule of the King. He is Lord! Live today totally surrendered to His sovereign rule in your life.
Spread the message of the Kingdom. Tell others about the true King and how wonderful he is to you.
“To these He also presented Himself alive after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God.” Acts 1:3 NASB
