Kingdom Authority. Kingdom Power.


In short, God is a King.  We are his adopted children, the royal citizens of God’s Kingdom.  Like a good Father and a wise king, God does not spoil us.  He gives us vital and important work to do in his kingdom and the authority and ability to do it.  When we exercise that authority, God’s kingdom advances in power.  And what joy!  We get to participate!

True, it doesn’t always feel like joy.  Sometimes it feels like hard work.  Sometimes it’s heart-breaking.  Sometimes it’s tedious.

But it’s connected to a bigger purpose.  And there’s that moment when you recognize that God is working in you and through you in power to accomplish His purposes.

And it’s exhilarating.  And it’s humbling.  And faith is built.  And hope is enlivened.  And love is renewed.  And we praise God!

The Lord is good and worthy of praise.  This day, may you know the joy of kingdom life!
