Give it Away

“And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” - Matthew 10:7-8

 The Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven are the same. It is where God rules and His authority as King are demonstrated. There will be a literal, visible kingdom of the Lord Jesus when He returns, but until then His kingdom is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

 This kingdom is within the heart when Christ is received as Saviour and Lord and, he rules, as King in your life. As a result we are commissioned to declare, “That the rule of God is at hand”, and by the authority of the Lord Jesus, who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords, heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and cast out demons.

 There is nothing to pay for the privilege of entering the kingdom of God. It is totally free to those who repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus as Lord. Having received freely of this gift of salvation we in turn are empowered to give freely of that which we have received.

Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for dying on the cross and rising from the dead, and I receive freely all You have provided for me. In turn I thank You for being a co-worker with You to heal the sick and cast out demons.
