The Kingdom of God – Part 1

Nov 05, 2018 | Dr. Mathew Kuruvilla

1 Peter 2:9 says, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light“.

The above verse very clearly states who we are and where we are in Christ. God has called us from darkness into His marvelous light to proclaim His works. But how can we proclaim His works? We can proclaim His works by reflecting God’s goodness in our lives and thus being a sign to the world that Jesus is alive. A person who is in Christ is already in the Kingdom of God. Whenever the Word says ‘in Christ’, it is about us, the Church. The church has already entered the Kingdom of God.

Jesus always spoke about the Kingdom of God and His teachings reveal how glorious it is to be in the Kingdom. Contrary to many teachings, Jesus never mentions anything about any famine or lack in His Kingdom, instead, the Word says that we are blessed and the blessings are in all the aspects like health, wealth, emotions, relationships and every other area of our lives. The word ‘blessing’ doesn’t refer to financial blessings alone. Financial blessing is only a fraction of the blessings in Christ. We are chosen by God Almighty to be a part of His Kingdom and to be a holy nation. To be successful and victorious here on earth while we live in the Kingdom of God, there are few things we need to follow:

1. Forget your past and don’t hold on to it.
2. Since we are called from darkness to light we should walk according to God’s plan. Our lives should not be controlled by the opinions and advices of those around us. We should be led by the Holy Spirit.
3. Since we are a royal priesthood we must rule as a king, pray for others (standing as a priest between God and man), and confess good confessions and prophecy into our lives as a prophet.
What a privilege it is to be GOD’S SPECIAL PEOPLE ! God bless you!
