The Kingdom of God is Lasting and Eternal
The Kingdom of God is Lasting and Forever
What is the greatest gift you can receive during CHRISTmas?
All of the gifts under the Christmas tree will at some point break or wear out. These gifts are temporal.
God’s redeeming love gift is eternal and lasts forever. We celebrate His birth and the gift of HIS life, death and resurrection all year long not just at CHRISTmas.
There is only one perfect gift to receive. The gift of the assurance of eternal life is the greatest gift to receive. This gift is given by God through HIS only son Jesus Christ for the redemption of sin for all mankind so that they can enter into their citizenship in the Kingdom of God now. This gift has to be asked for to be received. It is totally available all year long 24/7. Many times, it is through the problems, circumstances and difficulties of life that people seek first the Kingdom of God.
Jesus Christ is standing and knocking at the door to all hearts. The door has to be opened to receive the PERFECT GIFT. The gift has to be received. You must unwrap the gift of the Holy Spirit by asking for the Spirit. If you will seek the Holy Spirit, you will find the Holy Spirit, when you seek ME with ALL of your heart.
Being born again is the entrance for the Holy Spirit to begin teaching, guiding and directing you in Kingdom of God living. You have rights and privileges as a Citizen in the Kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit is your teacher.
In 2 Corinthians 5:17 we read, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” The Bible also tells us what changes will take place in your life when you are born again. Your desire for God’s word increases. Your desire to seek righteousness increases. Your desire to love and forgive others will increase. Your desire for temporal will decrease and the desire for eternal will increase. God has known you from the beginning of creation. You are wonderfully made. He knows the hairs on your head. HE knows everything about you. HE knows your birth date. You were created by God as an eternal being. Jesus the eternal came to bring your legal rights back into the Kingdom of God. Jesus overcame death. HE lives in you through the asking and receiving of the Power of HIS SPIRIT. Your assurance of eternal life rests in the promises of God through Jesus Christ’s birth, death and resurrection. Your redeemed changed life is the evidence of the Holy Spirit living in you.
