JACKSONVILLE — How do we enter the Kingdom of God?
“Jesus answered, ‘Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.’”
Where is the Kingdom of God? The kingdom of God is anywhere that Jesus Christ reigns supreme. For born-again Christians, the Kingdom of God is within them, for the Holy Spirit dwells within. Therefore, when we surrender our hearts and souls and minds to the will of Christ, we are operating within His Kingdom. To do so should be our ultimate goal, and our primary request from almighty God.
“The kingdom of God embraces all created intelligence, both in heaven and earth, that are willingly subject to the Lord and are in fellowship with Him. The kingdom of God is, therefore, universal in that it includes created angels and men. It is eternal, as God is eternal, and it is spiritual—found within all born-again believers. We enter the kingdom of God when we are born again, and we are then part of that kingdom for eternity. It is a relationship "born of the spirit”, and we have confident assurance that it is so because the Spirit bears witness with our spirits. (Romans 8:16).”
