Reign On Earth
‘And have made us kings and priests to our God, And we shall reign on the earth.’
– Revelations 5:10
Who is a king? one meaning reads; … a person or thing regarded as the finest or most important in their sphere or group.
What does it mean to reign? here is a meaning I find so powerful… (of a quality or condition) be the dominant feature of a situation or place.
Here is the transaction that happened when you accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior; you are moved from ordinary to extraordinary, from common to the most important, from slavery to rulership, from being dominated to being dominant.
That is really what awesome looks like!
In the bible times, kings were like gods. Remember King David, king Nebuchadnezzar, king Herod, Emperor Caesar, Emperor Nero,… powerful, feared, full of authority.
They governed by decrees, they were fully responsible for what happens in their domain. The expanse and strength of the kingdom is directly proportional to the capacity and strength of the king.
In this democratic age, the closest form to a king is the President. He is the commander in chief. Once elected, most of his decisions become final. His action or inaction determines the fate of millions of people in the state.
The bible says we have been made kings… to reign on earth. That means once we come into Christ, we come into royalty. It is both amazing and humbling at the same time.
This is who we are. king!
Maybe you don’t feel like one. It’s not by feeling, it is a belief, a mindset. It is who God says you are.
But….? But what! Your belief will shape your reality. Don’t overthink it! Simply believe and agree with God on who he says you are, then other things will follow.
It is no joke that God is called King of kings!
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for translating me into your kingdom. Thank you for making me a king and priest unto you.
I receive grace to think and live like your king.
I shall reign on earth to your glory.
In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
