You Have a Unique Place in Godís Kingdom
By Karen Pourbabaee
ďFor He delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son.Ē Colossians 1:13 NAS
In Godís eyes you have great worth! He carefully created your unique design and personality. He chose the time of your entry into the world. And He lovingly delivered you into the family He specifically intended. He engineers time, place, and circumstances to create the beautiful person He desires you to become.
In His great love for you and all of mankind and His longing for sons and daughters, God sent His Son to redeem the world. Jesus, the Lamb of God, became the ultimate sacrifice for the fall of man. Through this redemptive plan, you can become His adopted child, gain the gift of eternal life, and become a citizen of a new realm. God wants to capture your heart for His heavenly kingdom, a kingdom not ruled by acts of war, but acts of the heart.
How do you respond to such great love? Receive it! Go along with His adoption plan.
Take life. Then take your rightful place in your Fatherís kingdom, just as Jesus did while on the earth. You have a special role and a specific assignment to help accomplish the work of the kingdom. Seek and you will find that a whole new realm is awaiting you!
Thank you Karen for reminding us how special believers are and what a distinctive position we occupy in God's esteem and plans. As I read this article my thoughts take hold of the Scripture that says, "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light." (1 Peter 2:9) My wish is that all believers will live worthy of their calling in Jesus Christ. Thank you for this lovely devotional. Blessings and love.
