“If you want to be my disciple, you must hate everyone else by comparison—your father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be my disciple.” (Matthew 14:15-18 NLT)
Hello, family, we have turned over our lives to Christ! We are adopted into the Kingdom (big K) of God! That makes us citizens of His Kingdom, and because His Kingdom supersedes any and every government, and/or kingdom (little k) on this earth! It is only by God’s Power that they even exist (read Romans 13:1).
When we give our lives to Christ we exchange our thoughts for His thoughts, our mindset for His mindset, and our plans for His plans! Our reactions to all the events happening around us should reflect Christ and not this world! Yes, we live in this world but we are not of it! Our adoption into God’s Kingdom through Christ supersedes race, skin color, financial status, any and every physical attribute we have on this earth!
So when you get the urge to respond to an event that has happened in this world, check it and make sure it is how God wants you to respond, so we don’t add to the damage that has been done! We are citizens of God’s Kingdom First And Foremost! Withholding Nothing!
Much Love & God Bless
