Advancing the Kingdom of God
Manage episode 338427499 series 3245131
Jesus taught his disciples to pray "Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." The Kingdom of God comes when the rule of God is established. And when God is ruling, things on earth start to operate as things in heaven do. The order of God is established!
Salvation is about the forgiveness of sins, but it is also about a change in rule, a change in kingdom. We are rescued from the dark dominion of the devil and brought under the glorious rule of Jesus!
The Kingdom of God advances as the rule of God advances. So as we pray "Your kingdom come", we must open every door to King Jesus so that he can rule!
