Therefor I, the prisoner of the Lord… Ephesians 4:1 NASB
The apostle Paul was an amazing fellow. Having bowed his knee to the one true King who reigns over all (Psalm 103:19), he viewed everything in his life as being orchestrated by the Lord. Therefore, instead of fretting and stewing over the fact that he was incarcerated and unable to roam about freely, he simply considered himself to be the Lord’s prisoner and resigned himself to His will. We need to examine this attitude closely because we will see something that is crucial to living in the Reign of God.
We do not need more teaching in order to make disciples. If teaching alone was the answer, we have enough books, seminars, CD’s, retreats, and videos to disciple the planet. What we really need is people who will model the way of the King for others in everyday life.
It should go without saying that everything changes when God is in charge. Life begins to reflect the results of His Kingly reign. In this post we continue our discussion on what life looks like when God rules.
The Kingdom of God is God, the Sovereign Monarch of all that is, exercising His dominion; fulfilling His agenda. His rule is exercised predominantly in the lives of His loyal subjects. What does life look like when God is in charge?
