The Reign of the King…
His Kingdom is a ‘forever’ Kingdom….
We are secure ‘in’ Him..
Luke 1:32-33 NIV The angel Gabriel said to Mary… “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of his father David, and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever; His kingdom will never end.” (also see Isaiah 9).
John 14:15-18 NIV Jesus says that He will send us the Holy Spirit to be with us and ‘in’ us….”If you love Me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever – the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be ‘in’ you.”
1 John 4:13 NIV John tells us “We know that we live in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.”
Father…I thank you that we can ‘know’ YOU now. I thank you that we can experience Your presence each moment and day of our life, ‘now’. We can do this because You have given us Your Spirit to live inside us ‘so that’ Your Spirit can witness to our spirit that we are Yours and we belong to the eternal kingdom of Your Son, King Jesus. Help us to cherish this reality…there is nothing more precious for us to ‘know’ than is for us to ‘know’ we are ‘in’ Christ. Amen
