“That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory” (1 Thessalonians 2:12).

From the teachings of Jesus, the Kingdom of God has already come. In fact, the Bible says that the Kingdom is in our hearts, letting you know that it is a spiritual kingdom: “…The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:20-21). We are not “on our way” to the Kingdom; no! We carry the Kingdom in us. Not only are we in the Kingdom, we are also bearers of the Kingdom. In that Kingdom, there is glory. The two are not separate.

The Bible talks about the glory of the Kingdom. We answered the calling for the Kingdom; we have also answered the calling for the glory: “Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thessalonians 2:14). We have obtained glory. Hallelujah!

No wonder Jesus said in John 17:22 in His prayer to the Father, “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one” (John 17:22). Paul said in Romans 8:30 that we have been glorified. This glory is an eternal one, and it is inherent in our spirits: “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus…” (1 Peter 5:10). Blessed be God!

The Bible describes this glory as “excellent glory” (2 Peter 1:17). 2 Corinthians 3:10 calls it “…the glory that excelleth.” This is the glory of the Kingdom to which we belong and which we bear. 2 Peter 1:3 says we have been called to glory and excellence.

1 Peter 2:9 (AMPC) takes it further and says we are to “…set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” The reason we can show forth His glory – display His virtues and perfection – is that we are bearers of the same. Hallelujah! So, give expression to His glory in your world and impact others with the life of the Kingdom.

CONFESSION:

I am a bearer of the power, glory and dominion of the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom expands in me and through me; my world and environment are impacted by the glory of God. I walk in the consciousness and reality of my present-hour location in Christ and manifest His righteousness to the glory of His Name. Amen.
