Identity is knowing you belong to God and that He has a plan for you! You are a significant part of God’s Kingdom!
What is the Kingdom of God? The Kingdom of God is: “The presence and spiritual reign and authority of Christ the King on this earth.” God’s plan has always been to establish a Kingdom over which He would be King (to dwell with his people in peace and love and joy). Yes, the Kingdom of God is about privilege, about what we will experience in eternity. But, the Kingdom of God is also about purpose and responsibility: Living the way God wants you to live life right now! It is about Christ ruling and reigning in our hearts to accomplish His Kingdom Purpose on earth.
Today, ask God to give you clarity regarding your Kingdom Purpose and Responsibility.
Read the Text: II Corinthians 5:17-21
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God . 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. (NKJ)
Consider these 3 things:
As an “ambassador for Christ”…
1. Where do you spend most of your time?
2. Who do you spend most of your time with?
3. How are you influencing them Positively? Negatively? How are you influencing them for eternity?
