A Better Way To Enjoy The Kingship of God

There is a deeper and more intimate way of enjoying the kingship of God and this is through His son Jesus Christ. A proper way to begin enjoying this relationship is by first of all accepting Jesus as Lord of your life. This is what we call salvation. The intention of God the Father is made very clear to us in John 3:16 that He loved the world so much that He gave His only son to die for our sins and anyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. Amen. I will say salvation is the starting point for anyone who desires to understand and enjoy the kingship of God the Father. The bible tells us in Romans 10:9 (NKJV) that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. This is the only way to be saved. To bypass what this verse says and seek any other way is self-deception.

Here is another truth I want us to understand. Without salvation, you cannot see nor enter the kingdom and begin living the kingdom lifestyle. Secondly, after salvation, there is what Jesus referred to as the kingdom of God. When we talk about the kingdom, we are not referring to a physical location, but rather a way of living (a way of doing things). Jesus himself, speaking to Nicodemus (a Pharisee, ruler of the Jew) said this unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3 NKJV).

Then, later in John 3:5 (NKJV), Jesus, speaking to Nicodemus said this “unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God”.
So, you see that it is systematic. You cannot escape one level and think you will make it at the next level. Salvation grants you permission to see the kingdom. The word and the Spirit then grant you entrance into the Kingdom.

I will say this, your initial entry into the kingdom is not a guarantee that you will always be in there. It takes the word to understand the kingdom such that you do as directed by the word.
You may ask yourself, how all these are related to our topic of interest (the relational attributes of the Father). It is very much related in that He is King as previously stated and a better way to enjoy the relational aspect of His kingship, is through His son Jesus.
There was no other way to get you to the place of understanding of how the process works without briefly mentioning the reason for His death, how to be saved, an idea of what the kingdom is all about and the difference between seeing the kingdom and entering the kingdom.
So, I will conclude by saying this, if you have not accepted Jesus as Lord of your life, I invite you to do so. If you need help on how to go about it, please do not hesitate to call us and we will be very glad to assist you in the process. Amen.

God Is "King"

Psalm 10:16a
The LORD is King for ever and ever;
Emphasis Mine

God is King and He is king over all creation and He remains King forever. This is a very significant aspect of our relationship with Him. It is important that even as we enjoy diversity in our relationship with Him, we should not lose sight of this aspect. He is King over us not from a domineering perspective, but from a love.

There are many aspects to His kingship, however, this is what I want us to see in the context of relationship. Relationship requires orderliness. There must be an authority that you bow to when in relationship in terms of your standards and values. By this, I mean that there is no place for indifference in relationship. We are either implementing kingdom values or worldly values. If we choose kingdom values, understand that God is the author of kingdom values.

Therefore, when you relate with Him, reverence these aspects of Him. Allow Him to teach you His ways, in the context of relationship. Do not undermine His kingship by choosing your way over His. If you do, there are consequences to that. Also, when you yield to the kingdom values, there are benefits.

Throughout scripture, we see men and women who upheld kingdom values in their relationship with the King.
Abraham and Moses are men in the bible who had high regard for the King and it was evidenced by the obedience to Him. As they enjoyed different aspects of His relational attributes, they did not lose sight of His authority as King.
The Apostle Paul is also a great example of one who lived an intimate relationship with the King, yet never regarded himself at any point, to be higher than Him.
We can learn from these individuals by doing likewise. It is a privilege to enjoy this relational attribute of God the Father. Amen.

       In addition to everything we have said about the king and the kingdom, I will us to understand that there is a deeper and more intimate way to enjoy the kingship and this will be through His son Jesus Christ. We will look at that subsequently.
