Reigning

     Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”  The kingdom is the reign of God in the lives of people.  The Christian life is all about His Kingdom, His will being carried out on earth.
         It’s not about us and our comfort, our healing, or our satisfaction, though we receive comfort, healing and satisfaction in Christ. We are not really saved for ourselves. God is not trying to just get our lives back in order.  He is setting up His Kingdom and calling people out of darkness into His marvelous light. He saved us for His honour and glory, because He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords and He reigns over all, in all, and 
through all. He is taking over the physical reality we see with our eyes with the unseen Reality of His Kingdom.
          When He saved us, He seated us in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.  We exist in the unseen realm, so that even though we are in our bodies and our bodies are ours, they are merely a tent in which we dwell.  We dwell with God and in God, and He dwells in us.  The fullness of God is in us in Christ. We are eternal beings, existing in eternity right now.  We exist in everlastingness, right now. What an astounding reality for us who believe.
