The Kingdom of God..

To teach about the kingdom of God, you must first live the kingdom of God in your own life.
That's when you'll be effective, that's when you'll start to find favor, that's when you'll be blessed, that's
when the world will turn to you and hate you. That's why people were so attracted to Jesus, cause His life was about the Kingdom. He lived out the kingdom. He was about the father's business. He done nothing apart from what he saw His father in heaven doing. It's about being obedient to Jesus in every part of your life. Finances, relationships, etc...  The Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. If you serve Jesus with this attitude, you will please God.

The Kingdon of God is not just fancy talk, it is living by Gods power. As a person who is put in charge
you must  be faithful, cause the Lord will examine you and decide. What do you have that God hasn't given you? And if all you have is from God, why boast as though you have accomplished something on your own? Your  dedication to Jesus makes you look like a fool to the world. People are gonna laugh at you, let them laugh! They're gonna mock you, let them mock! I know very well how foolish the message of the corss sounds to those who are on the road to destruction. But we who are being saved recognize this message as the very power of God. There is Holy Spirit filled power in the gospel. He uses that power to pierce right into a persons heart.
