Until John the Baptist came the law and the prophets was preached, but John the Baptist came and he preached the Kingdom of God. He came to make the way for the King, Jesus Christ, and then the King of the Kingdom, Jesus Christ Himself, came to redeem for Himself a people that would serve and worship Him, a people that would inherit His kingdom, a people that would follow Him and do His will; those are the sons of God, the children of God.
The normal man is only concerned about himself, he himself, is the king of his life, his whole life centers around himself. But those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Master, and have submitted themselves to Him, who have become part of His kingdom, their life centers around Jesus Christ, around doing His will. They have died to self and their own ambitions, their own desires, and they live only for one thing, and that is the kingdom of God. They live to serve the King, the Master Jesus Christ. He is Lord; every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, that He is Master. Even those who rejected Him, who despised Him, even those who pierced Him, who killed Him, they will confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, but it will be too late for them. Now is the day of salvation, now is the day of the Lord. Today is the day to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Master and become part of His kingdom. If you reject Him you will perish. There is only one way to have eternal life and that is to serve Jesus Christ as Lord; to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, to obey His words, to accept Him, accept His words, repent, turn away from serving yourself, turn away from being the center of your own existence, and make Jesus Christ the center of your life. Turn away from sin and selfishness, submit yourself to Jesus as Lord and Master, die to self, be born again of the Spirit of God, and of water, be baptized in water, and come out of that water a new creature, be filled with the Holy Spirit and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Serve the King in holiness and righteousness. Let your life center around Him or else you cannot be part of His kingdom.
Are you part of the kingdom of God? Do you follow and serve the King, Jesus Christ? Is He real to you? Have you made Him the center of your life, or are you doomed and destined for eternal destruction? Seek Jesus now, while you can. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, serve Him as Lord and Master. Know Him for real or else He will say to you, like He will say to so many who rejected Him, so many who served themselves, so many who ran after people; He will say to them: Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness, because they did not believe in Him. They did not accept Him, they did not serve Him as Lord and Master. Is Jesus Christ your Master? Is he the center of your existence?
May Jesus bless you.
