"He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins." -Colossians 1:13-14 (ESV)
The Kingdom of God is seen wherever Jesus is recognized and worshipped as king. Followers of Christ are subjects of another kingdom; one that will come in fullness with the return of the King, but also a kingdom reality that can be walked in and experienced even now. This is a kingdom that "is not of this world." A kingdom of love, righteousness, justice and mercy. A kingdom of truth and beauty, holiness and power. This is the kingdom we truly belong to and we are given the Holy Spirit to enable us to walk as citizens of His kingdom, even in "this present evil age."
Pray: -For many to enter the kingdom through faith in Jesus, the King of Kings. -For believers to be empowered to demonstrate the kingdom as they serve the King. -For the Lordship of Christ to influence every part of of our communities, cities, nations and the world.
