Jesus broke into our world bringing the kingdom of God. When he lifted his finger lepers were healed, demons fled and Lazarus rose from the dead.
The already-not-yet kingdom of God is where all believers reside. Jesus made it possible by his death on the cross for us to live eternally with him in this life and in the next.
As believers, we are ambassadors for Jesus Christ. We are his sales reps here on earth. But what we have to offer can only be purchased by Christ's sacrifice, the pearl of great price. It is freely given with grace, hope, and love from the redeemer who is Christ in us, the hope of glory.
Where he walked the grass turned green and the birds sang. The light everlasting came with the dawn of his birth and won't be extinguished. He is with us for all time and his kingdom endures forever.
But if it is by the finger of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. Luke 11:20
And the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” He answered and said to them, because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. Matthew 13: 11
To whom God was pleased to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Colossians 1: 27
Love and blessings,
