Relationships in God’s Kingdom

Relationships in God’s Kingdom
by Judy Hitson

Psalm 22:28 NASB For the kingdom is the LORD’S And He rules over the nations.

In God’s kingdom, our relationship with God is of primary importance and then our relationship with man. The Lord’s prayer comes to mind, Matthew 6:9-13. The first instruction Jesus gave His disciples to pray, Our Father who is in heaven. That is all about relationship. The first request He teaches in verse 10, Your kingdom come…..on earth as it is in heaven.

As a follower of Christ ponder this question with me:

How is your relationship with God as your Father in heaven?

Will you join me in this prayer?

Father in heaven,
I draw near to You. Thank You that You draw near to me, James 4:8a. I am Your daughter/son, John 1:12. Thank You for our relationship through Your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, my Savior, my Lord, my God, yet my brother, my coming Bridegroom, my life, my all. Your kingdom come, your will be done in my life by Your Spirit in me. Strengthen my relationships pleasing You for Your kingdom purposes on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus name. Amen.

Thinking of God’s kingdom, another scripture comes to mind for us to consider:

Isaiah 9:6-7 NKJV
6 For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

 Through an intimate relationship with God, it is profound to consider His kingdom and our part with Him. I hear, “Relate to those in God’s kingdom in love and with a winsome spirit for those without that some might be saved. Always relate truth in love which can only manifest by the Spirit of God in us. Go forth now to love and serve the Lord your God, Jesus Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords. Prepare for His coming. Disciple those who know Him and warn those who do not.
On closing, I hear, “Faith of our Fathers.” Check it out on YouTube. Amazing!
