Christ: The Kingdom Of God

Day 141
Verse of the day

Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Matthew 6:10

When you, beloved of the Father, offer effectual prayers, they never fall to the ground. He listens, hears and answers in due time. When Christ, the first beloved, therefore ask you to pray thus, “…Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven…” you must not only pray so but run with the vision such prayer bears.

The kingdom of God has come

Christ, by redemption, has opened up for us the gates to God’s kingdom. Through Him, we have access to all that is and is in God. He was the promised Kingdom.

The Kingdom of God is here

As we live each day, we who were once darkness have been made light; we have submitted to one Saviour, Lord and King, who were once lawless. We are being made partakers of the divine Life, the Spirit of God dwelling in us, the seal of our citizenship. In us dwells the promised Kingdom.

We have not only become partakers of the heavenly kingdom but have received the responsibility of filling the earth with its culture. We must, therefore, give a full account of our stewardship in seeing that the whole earth is filled with the knowledge and glory of God (Habakkuk 2:14).

We would be mistaken to restrict our understanding of ‘earth’ as used to be geographical, for as we know there are yet landmasses unoccupied by man. ‘Earth’ speaks of spheres bearing an influence on the soul of Man. We must shine our lights and play our part in ensuring that every sphere experiences the influence of the kingdom of God which is Christ in us (Luke 17:21).

The kingdom of God will come

And as we live out His kingdom, we wait in hope and expectation of the eventual coming of the Kingdom of God where there will remain One King to Whom every knee will bow, some in love, others in judgment.

Thus we pray Christ’s prayer and see it answered as we work, the earth being filled with righteousness, love, and the knowledge of the one true King. For faith in prayer is only effective with directed works.

Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Today’s Confession

The kingdom of God resides in me. I engage this kingdom and play my part in seeing that the will of my King is done here on earth as it is in His kingdom.
