Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory

Daily God Walk for Monday, April 12, 2010

 For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

 – Matthew 6:13 (KJV)

 This final phrase in the prayer sums up our relationship with him. The kingdom is his; all the power is his; all the glory belongs to him. Where does that leave us? It leaves us subjects in his kingdom.

Isaiah spoke of one who would be the head of God’s rule on earth. He wrote, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end” (Isaiah 9:6-7).

Jesus came to establish the everlasting kingdom of God on earth. This kingdom is headquartered in the hearts of those who would receive his message. All the power of God is vested in his kingdom and his power is given to the subjects of his kingdom. All the glory of God, all of the hope of God, is vested in his kingdom and the kingdom of God is in the hearts of men.

Do you understand what that means to we who are believers in Jesus, the Christ of Redemption? Follow this line of reason:

  • Jesus proclaimed the kingdom – then gave the kingdom to those who followed him.
  • Jesus declared all power rested in him – then sent his disciples to tarry until they too received the power.
  • Jesus is the glory of the Father: “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory” (Hebrews 1:3) – The Glory of God is being manifest in believers: “We, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory” (2 Corinthians 3:18).

His is the kingdom, and we are his kingdom. All of heavens power is invested in we who are the kingdom, All glory has been given to the kingdom. We have kingdom responsibility to this generation.

 Principle:  With kingdom power comes kingdom responsibility.

Affirmation:  I accept the responsibility of being a kingdom subject.

 Prayer:  Lord, grant me grace to be a witness to your kingdom. Amen.
