Methodist minister and theologian, E. Stanley Jones, wrote, “The Church needs nothing so much as it needs a rediscovery of the absolute, the absolute of the Kingdom.” I wholeheartedly agree.
When we receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, we are delivered from one kingdom–the kingdom of darkness–and brought into the Kingdom of God’s Son. To experience all that this new life offers, we must learn how to live in God’s Kingdom.
Jesus did not offer Himself as the sacrifice for our sin just to guarantee us a place in Heaven when die. He came to teach and empower us to live in the Kingdom of God–here and now.
It is my prayer that you will discover this new and abundant life that is available to anyone who will “seek first the kingdom.”
