The Kingdom of God is mentioned more than 150 times in the New Testament only. Jesus taught about His kingdom and the importance of abiding in Him, by being emptied of ourselves and filled by the love of God above. It becomes obvious when we are abiding the show is not being ran by us, Jesus is, and He surely does it well. When you abide in His Kingdom, there is life to the fullest. By remembering His own words in Mathew 6:33 “But seek FIRST the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” So do not pursue after love, security, peace, Intimacy, Fame, Status, relationship, recognition, Approval, pleasure e.t.c because they are all found in the Kingdom of God.
In Mark 1:14 after John the Baptist was arrested Jesus’ own words were “the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” Luke 4:43 “I must preach the good news of the Kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose.” After the resurrection of Christ in Acts 1:3 “He presented Himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the Kingdom of God.” One who was known as Saul before and now Paul by the grace of God says in Acts 19:8 “And he entered the synagogue and for three months spoke boldly, reasoning and persuading them about the Kingdom of God.” “And now, behold, I know that none of you among whom I have gone about proclaiming the Kingdom will see my face again.” (Act 19:25) Those were Paul’s last word’s to the Ephesian Church before going to Jerusalem. “Therefore, let it be known to you that this Salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will listen. He lived there two whole years at his own expense, and welcomed all who came to him, proclaiming the Kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.” (Act 28:28-31) May this holy word of God blow a fresh wind over you and remind you the importance of seeking and abiding in the Kingdom of God with all your heart, mind and soul. Above is a great picture to show you how we need to be soaked in the Kingdom of God and not seeking other things.
