We are chosen by God to be His beloved children. We are here to build up His Kingdom. It is our birthright and bound duty.
God has placed His Kingdom on this earth. It is the greatest love that is manifested in every creation of the earth and the universe. It is His greatest love that created man in His own image. We have to recognize His image in us and in others.
Christ has asked us to build up the Kingdom of God
Each and every word of Jesus Christ insists this great work of building up the heavenly kingdom on this earth. God sent His own Son to guide us in the way of building up the kingdom of love.
Man lost himself and neglected the kingdom of love on this earth by committing sin. Human selfishness blocked him from building up God's kingdom. He lost everything and was thrown out of his inheritance by his own sin. God had to redeem man from his sinful state and put him back on the noble task of building up His kingdom.
Every action of man creates ripples, positively and negatively
Every thought, word and deed of everyone helps or blocks this building up work in some way or other. Every action creates positive and negative effects in building up God's kingdom.
Every person lives, makes an impact on others and influences them in helping or blocking this God-given work. Just like a stone thrown into stagnant water creates a series of circles of ripples, every action has an impact on the work of building the kingdom of God.
We have been assigned the work
As chosen Christians we have been assigned to the work of building up the kingdom of heaven on this earth, through our life of love. Jesus has given us the commandment of LOVE. He said, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself."(Matthew 22:37-39)
Let us come forward to build up God's kingdom
Love. It is the greatest asset given to us. Love unites and builds up. Selfishness separates and destroys.
