We will be celebrating Easter in a couple of weeks which made it possible for mankind to have the kingdom of God inside of them, if they accept Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. In light of this upcoming celebration, it is a good time to focus on the kingdom of God.

When I close my eyes and quiet my soul, along with the world around me, I find deep within my spirit all that pertains to the kingdom of God.
I find peace, joy, love, patience, gentleness, goodness, righteousness, faith, hope, praise and worship, intercession and supplication, and so much more. These are always there deep inside of me continuously being and doing whether I am conscious of them or not.
Most of all, I recognize an eternal, ageless life that has no end and no fear of ending.
My spirit is like a gateway into the eternal life that belongs to God. I can stand on the threshold of that entry and see that an infinite existence lies before me; that is, lies within me.
“And of His kingdom there shall be no end.” Luke 1:33b. “Of the increase of this government and peace there shall be no end.” Isaiah 9 :7
It is comforting to remember, given the uncertainties of the age in which we live, that our citizenship is not of this world and our King is The King of all kings and The Lord of all lords. “And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
I should quiet my soul more often.
