The Kingdom of God

What does this term really mean?
The Kingdom of God means that God has ultimate rule, reign and sovereignity. His Kingdom is yet to come in many ways; but, it is also already here. It came when Jesus burst through the heavens and came to earth; a king disguised as a helpless baby. It came when Jesus taught and when he healed and when he cast out demons. It came when he intentionally allowed himself to be crucified because he knew that death would be defeated when his father ressurrected him.
God's rule on earth.
Where do we hear that phrase? The Lord's Prayer: Thy Kingdom Come, Thy will be done.
When we pray as believers we are calling God's kingdom power forth. We are participating in expanding the kingdom as the enemy's power is bound.
What is a practical way that we see The Kingdom of God at work? In healing and recovery ministry. As we call forth Jesus' healing power to come forth; we are bringing God's kingdom forth from heaven to earth. As we walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus' name, we are able to do the things that Jesus did. He always led people to wholeness, freedom and truth. As Missio Lux, this is what we will also do: invite people to live in light which leads to health, wholeness and freedom.
