The King of Kings

”For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness…” Colossians 2:9-10


To be a part of God’s kingdom, we must establish Him as the King of Kings in our hearts. Until this is determined, we are sadly left out. Now, to acknowledge God as King also requires belief in, and confession of, Jesus as the only way into His Kingdom. Jesus said it this way in John 14:6, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” God’s Kingdom is without a doubt one of faith, which is administered by…


GRACE UPON…


”Out of His fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given.” John 1:16


How many times could God, out of His frustration with ‘man’, have just wiped us out and said, ‘forget it’? In all honesty, have we humans been worth it? But He didn’t because of His grace. So here we are, people undeserving of grace and yet, due to His nature, graced anyway. That it was ‘grace already given’, refers to before we knew Jesus - when we were blind to His ways. And even though we did not know God, He treated us as if we were His best friends. He protected and provided for us in spite of the fact we did not thank Him or give Him credit. God is full of grace because He doesn’t need anything from us.


…MORE GRACE.


”…It is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8


God’s Kingdom is based on grace - so our good works can not enhance it, nor our bad works impede it. His kingdom is unaffected by our efforts. This is the whole point of grace, we can’t win, achieve, earn or purchase it - making the heirs of grace dependent on God. Through the work of Jesus, we have now been given new levels of grace: From God (life); and from Jesus (love), and from the Holy Spirit (an empowered, more effective way to live). This empowered way to live is free from performance - God is so pleased with Jesus that His joy flows to us.
