All those who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Master have the POTENTIAL to become children of God and to become part of the Kingdom of God. They have the POTENTIAL to become heirs of the Kingdom of God but very few people are interested in Jesus Christ, in serving Him and in the Kingdom of God.
Most people go after their own affairs, they seek their own advancement. Jesus said that if we wish to follow Him and become part of His Kingdom then we need to deny ourselves, pick up our cross every day and follow Him. We need to ABANDON our own desires, our own ambitions and the Kingdom of God needs to become our ambition. We need to seek to advance the Kingdom of God. If you are not born again you cannot SEE the Kingdom of God, you cannot UNDERSTAND IT. You first need to be born again of the Spirit of God and of water (baptism) and then you can SEE the Kingdom of God, it becomes real to you. Jesus said:”Seek ye first the ADVANCEMENT OF THE Kingdom of God and His RIGHTEOUSNESS and then all the other things will be added unto you, you will become and heir of the Kingdom of God. Jesus calls us to SERVE the Kingdom of God but very few people are interested in serving, they want to serve themselves, their own lusts, their own desires, their own ambitions. If we do not take ownership, possession, interest in the Kingdom of God, then we will not have an inheritance!
Believers want eternal life, they don’t want to go to hell but they don’t want Jesus ether, neither are they interested in the Kingdom of God. They don’t want to SERVE, they call it a WORKS GOSPEL. They don’t want to work for the Kingdom of God. They don’t seek the ADVANCEMENT of the Kingdom of God. They are not seeking the RIGHTEOUSNESS of God, His STANDARD and therefor they do not become part of the Kingdom of God. We cannot serve and advance the Kingdom of God if we are not led by the Holy Spirit. We cannot work ON the Kingdom and FOR the Kingdom unless we serve the King, Jesus Christ. We need to KNOW Him, LOVE Him, FOLLOW Him and OBEY Him every day and DO what He tells us to do, GO where He sends us. Whatever the cost, we have to INVEST ourselves, sacrifice our own desires for the benefit of the Kingdom of God.
We must WILLINGLY serve Jesus. Jesus will MIGHTILY use those who make themselves available, who come and sit at His feet and WAIT on Him and say:”Lord, please use me as YOU please. YOU are my KING and my MASTER and I want to serve YOUR Kingdom.”
Few will serve, few will inherit that kingdom. Are you willing to SERVE the Kingdom of God? If you are not willing you will have no part in it! You wont have eternal life, you will not have Jesus! ARE YOU WILLING TO SERVE?
May Jesus bless you.
