Exhortations

The Kingdom Within Us.

The Kingdom Within Us.

Whatever we do, do it for the LORD; we should not be afraid of whatever it takes. What the Bible verses say: For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our King; he will save us—(Isaiah 33:22). Whatever you find to do with your hands, do it with all your might, for in Sheol, where you are going, there is no work, planning, knowledge, or wisdom— (Ecclesiastes 9:10). Moreover, in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, in the law, and the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart and prospered—(2 Chronicles 31:21).

The Bible shares God’s wisdom with us, so we should not be ashamed or afraid to pray. We can pray aloud or in silence, and we should know by now where to do it properly to show our love and relation to the one true God. Our relationship with God is between you and Him. We are the Church, “the Body of Christ” as a whole, but we are still the temple of God—(1 Corinthians 6:19-20), and the Kingdom of God is within us now, not tomorrow or sooner—(Luke 17:20-21). Our body is holy to God; whoever destroys it will be dealt with accordingly—(1 Corinthians 3:17). Therefore, when we communicate with God, we go to a room in our house without distractions.

We should not put God in a place where He will be mocked and put ourselves in a situation where we cannot be heard anymore. Nevertheless, whatever it takes, the LORD will not send us to places without tomorrow. Even Jesus told his disciples, “When they “are not willing to listen to the gospel, leave that house or town and move to another place.” Whatever” it takes, whatever we do, we should not embarrass or put to shame the kingdom of God within us. The kingdom starts within the family. We are the King and lord of the kingdom entrusted to us. We are the stewards, and our responsibility is to rule it gracefully. We are accountable when someone stumbles because we are the ruler of the kingdom, and the practice of Salvation must be according to the will and purpose of God. 

Sing praises to God! Sing praises! Sing praises to our King! Sing praises!—Psalm 47:6

To God is all the glory! Hallelujah!!Published 9/26/2023
