Rhapsody Of Realities Devotional For 24th April 2023
TOPIC: WE’VE RECEIVED THE KINGDOM
SCRIPTURE READING: Luke 12:32. “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.
ONE YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN: Luke 20:20-21:1-4 & 1 Samuel 20-22
TWO YEARS BIBLE READING PLAN:- Mark 5:1-13 & Leviticus 24
FURTHER STUDY:- Mark 1:14; Luke 17:20-21 AMPC
Hebrews 12:28 tells us something similar to what we just read in our opening verse. It says, “Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.” The King James almost gives the impression that you’re in the process of receiving the Kingdom, but when you study the verse in the original Greek rendering, that’s not what it’s saying; you got the Kingdom already. The Complete Jewish Bible makes it clearer.
It says, “Therefore since we have received an unshakeable Kingdom, let us have grace, through which we may offer service that will please God with reference and fear.” We’ve received the Kingdom that we should live in it and express the life of the Kingdom. What is the life of the Kingdom? How can we know the true Christian life that God expects us to live today?
The first thing to do is to study the book of Acts. The epistles also give us a lot of insight. Finally, the prophetic Word of blessings to the Jews about the millennial reign of Christ shows us an amazing picture of what the life of the Kingdom is. That’s what He’s already given to us to live in and experience NOW!
Anything less than these isn’t full Christianity, and isn’t the life of the Kingdom. This is the reason we’re raising and educating God’s people on the Kingdom-life and the Kingdom-way of doing things. There’s a Kingdom way to think. Now that you’re in the Kingdom, you must learn to live by the principles of God’s Word. His Word is our blueprint and roadmap on how to live the ever-glorious, joyous and transcendent life of the Kingdom.
Righteous Father, I thank you for not only bringing me into the Kingdom, but for also giving me the Kingdom. Thank you for your Word, which educates and enlightens me on the Kingdom-life and the Kingdom-way of doing things; I live the ever-glorious, joyous and transcendent life of the Kingdom, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and clease me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH
