This Kingdom is Superior

Colossians 1:12-13
"Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: [13] who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son".

The church is a kingdom, the Kingdom of Jesus. We come into this kingdom as we give our lives to Jesus and make him the Lord of our lives. In the Kingdom of Jesus we are as citizens and heirs. The citizens of this kingdom are not under the power and domination of Satan. Satan no longer determines their destiny. The kingdom of God determines our wellbeing and welfare, not the kingdom of darkness and not the situation or circumstance that we find ourselves in.

The kingdom of Jesus is superior to all the world kingdoms and is superior to the organised kingdom of darkness in all its forms and shapes. The gates of hell can never prevail against this kingdom, the church will continue to grow and extend it's boundaries no matter the attack against it and the people of this kingdom will reach their ultimate destiny.

The citizens of this kingdom are to obey God more than man no matter the cost and are required to live and die for Him just like patriotic soldiers would do. Soldiers go to war and are willing to die in defence of their nation; a believer must also be willing to suffer and die for his Lord. Our kingdom, this kingdom is superior!
