You are from another world. In this world but not of this world.
Colossians 1:13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.
John 15:19 The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you.
Our identity is not driven by this world.
The Kingdom is our Priority
Matthew 6:33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
Is the Kingdom your priority?
The Kingdom is power
1 Corinthians 4:20 For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power.
God releases power for you to live when you put His Kingdom first. There is a power of revelation for you at work. Power for you to do what God asks of you.
The Kingdom is higher
Mark 1:15 “The time promised by God has come at last!” he announced. “The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News!”
Repent means to change your thinking. Our thinking is different to the thinking of the world.Tithing does not make sense to the world. Communion does not make sense to the world. But they are according to another kingdom.
Matthew 20:25-27 But Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave.
The Kingdom expands
Matthew 6:9-13 Your prayers, rather, should be simple, like this: Our Father in heaven, let Your name remain holy. Bring about Your kingdom. Manifest Your will here on earth, as it is manifest in heaven. And forgive us our debtsas we forgive those who owe us something. Lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from evil. But let Your kingdom be, and let it be powerful and glorious forever. Amen.
The Kingdom is expanding on the earth.
Matthew 16: 13-20
When you see Jesus, you will have a greater revelation of who you are. Who you are created to be on this earth.
When you see Jesus, the kingdom will come to earth.
The Kingom of God wins!
