Scripture at Sunrise 6.30.2010

“We exhorted each one of you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, Who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.”  -1 Thessalonians 2:12

It’s not at all that living the life of the kingdom brings us into the kingdom.  It’s that once we have been brought into the kingdom through faith in the King, we find ourselves with a new Master, a new law, a new charter, a new life— and therefore we begin to want to live the life of the kingdom.
