Purpose: Sent to Deliver the Kingdom

Purpose: Sent to Deliver the Kingdom

But He said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.” Luke 4:43

One of the reasons Jesus came to earth was to introduce the kingdom of God to humankind. After the fall in the Garden of Eden, humans lost several privileges, among them the struggle-free existence and royalty that God had originally intended us to maintain. But God did not desire this to remain so; that was why He initiated the process of restoring humans to the exalted pedestal He had destined for us, so that we can reign as kings on earth. For this reason, Jesus came; to pitch a new world order to us.

The kingdom of God offers the promises of all that man lost in the Garden of Eden, and more. But, unlike before when we would have been birthed into it by default, God would not force anyone to accept it. He thereafter made it a matter of personal choice. The decision to subscribe to it has to be made by each individual; proxy is not allowed.

As it is, the kingdom of heaven has already come to men with the coming, teachings, death, resurrection and eventual ascension of Jesus Christ. But subscribing to it is principally dependent on your willingness to accept it, by accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour; your adopting a paradigm shift in tandem; and your living in manners that affirm your new status.

Just as Jesus came to deliver the lost glories of the kingdom of God to us, some individuals around are similarly called to do so. People with this calling usually have unusual insights about the kingdom of God, and their dissertation on it always leaves the hearers with a lifted spirit and better understanding of what the kingdom is all about. People with this calling have an unusual sense of security and they live above the everyday struggles that humans generally grapple with. Those are parts of the perks that come with the mandate.

If you know any of such persons who proclaim the truth of the kingdom of God, please listen to them (Acts 16:17).

You will succeed in Jesus Name!
