Part 2 – Freedom- I am a Citizen of the Kingdom

We have been set free from the grip of the law of guilt and of sin.
Freedom is about becoming all that God has deemed us to be. We are qualified through our faith in Jesus and share in the inheritance He has provided for His people.
He invites us to come out fr4om under the dominion of darkness, the captivity of sin; the tyranny and oppression of the devil to live in the life of His Kingdom.Colossians 1:12-13,   12 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.

Christ rescued you the moment you gave your life to Him. Your citizenship changed. You are no longer ruled by sin, darkness, nor subject to the tyranny of the devil.

It’s important to be aware that it’s possible to be a citizen in God’s kingdom yet not share in what God has available to us. We need a new way of looking at our reality in God’s kingdom. We are to think differently; to identify the ways that our thinking has carried over from the kingdom of darkness and to repent. We are to bring them into God’s kingdom of light so that we may be freed from them and be able to enjoy our full inheritance.

Jesus instructs us to seek God’s kingdom first and His way of doing things, so that we might know Him and trust that He will provide for us.
