31″When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. 32All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34″Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37″Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40″The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’Matthew 25:31-40
Jesus came to release a kingdom in this world. The “Kingdom of God.” In the Kingdom, whatever we need to live an overcoming life in this world is provided. Your very words are filled with power. We represent God in this world as an ambassador of the Kingdom. Some people say that they are trying to get to heaven. God is more interested in Heaven coming to you. Jesus came to release the Kingdom of God in this world. In the Kingdom, everything is subject to the authority of the King. “Jesus.” At the name of the King, sicknesses must bow. Depression must bow. Poverty must bow. Spiritual power given to us by our faith in the King is released when we command with our words in faith. The scriptures say that God has given us His name. When I tell the devil to get out in the name of Jesus, he must obey because of the power of King of Kings. This power is released into our lives to serve one another in love. Jesus said that His sheep would be separated, blessed and ushered into their resting place in the Kingdom because they served. The feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, made friends with the stranger, provided clothes for the naked, tended to the sick, and visited the prisoner. Jesus said that when we do these things to one another, we are doing it unto Him. By helping those in need we are ministering unto Jesus. Our King does not expect us to serve powerless. He gives us His Kingdom. His Kingdom is established inside our heart. When we minister, we pull from the resources of the Kingdom to provide what we need to serve one another. Our words spoken in faith, releases the power to perform what is needed. The scriptures say that we have received the Keys of the Kingdom. Whatever we bind or loosen on earth will be bound and loosened in heaven. That is using the authority of the name of Jesus to serve the world in the love of God. We must take our eyes off of ourselves and begin to carry the weights of the world. Jesus desires to help the hurting and needy. He has chosen you to be the carrier of His love and provision to a lost and hurting world. Through our ministering to the world, they will see the light of the Kingdom of God and desire to become a citizen, just like you and me. Serve the King and He will give you power.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I desire to know more about You. Your Word lights my path and increases my faith to believe. I surrender my life into your service. Empower me to minister to the world in Your love. Let them see the Kingdom through my words of encouragement and my acts of compassion. I believe that You have invested great power in my life so that I can demonstrate Your majesty. You are my King. I will serve You forever. In Jesus name, amen.
Now go do great things for God
