The Kingdom of God and You
The Cornerstone of Our Faith
Throughout the Bible, God consistently describes our relationship with Him as a king with his subjects. Though people in other cultures might fully comprehend that description, those of us raised in a democratic society struggle to grasp that concept.
God calls His people to submit their personal agendas to His mission. He expects obedience, loyalty, and a servant's heart. None of these come easily or naturally for Christians today. We must learn obedience. We must choose to put kingdom goals ahead of our personal goals. The King calls; we must respond.
