Dr. Lester - Life in God's Kingdom

Updated: May 5

The kingdom of God is at hand. The message is clear. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. This is why John wrote his Gospel- that we might believe that "Jesus" is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing we would have "life in His name" (John 20:31).


Jesus said, "To see the kingdom of God one must be born again, not through a second biological birth but by spiritual birth" (John 3:3).


Paul instructs us about life in the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is where our King, the Lord Jesus Christ, rules his obedient subjects for their everlasting blessing and God's eternal glory. (Romans 14:13-23).


The kingdom of God is where the fruit of the Spirit - "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance" (Galatians 5:22-23) grows in plenty.


The kingdom of God is where God's power manifests in the task of witness-bearing to the saving work of Jesus Christ to the whole world. The kingdom of God is spiritual. The Father seeks such people who worship Him in the spirit and truth (John 4:23-24). The kingdom of God is righteousness. We are saved to serve the Lord in righteousness.
