The King’s Family

A common saying is that we have power in the name of Jesus. And that is true but a more accurate saying is that we have the authority in the name of Jesus.

When someone is born again, they become a child of God. They are adopted into the family of God. We are foreigners and strangers in the ways of God, to the things of God, and then when we accept Christ into our lives, we are accepted into the kingdom of God.

Even though when we are first saved, we are like babies, we are part of God’s kingdom. The moment that we accept Christ, we are part of God’s family.

As a new born member of the family, we have to grow up in the ways of the family, in the ways of God.  And that’s okay. That’s the way that God intended it.

When we become part of God’s family, we carry the family name, because we are part of God’s family, we are part of God’s kingdom.

It is a kingdom, it is not a democracy.  And therefore, as a part of kingdom, we have the full of authority of the King.  We have authority over darkness.  God gives us everything that we need to live a godly life.

God’s kingdom is a kingdom of love. It is a kingdom of truth. As children of the kingdom, we are part of the Kingdom of love and truth.
