“The Goal of Receiving the Kingdom”

Genesis 15:1-6

  • When God speaks to us, we must believe His Word, no matter how impossible it may seem.

Hebrews 11:1-2;7-13

  • Faith takes hold of God’s power in bringing into reality God’s favor and provisions into our life.
  • Let us act on the Word of God for this is what faith is.

Psalm 33:6-22

Luke 12:32-37

  • God gave us the privilege to become part of His Kingdom; We are to allow Him to be fully Lord, God, and Master over our lives. He is the King; not us.
  • As the Lord gave us the Kingdom, we are to submit to His Kingdom in us.
  • It is the Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom.
  • We should not put our security/dependence in what we have but only in God
