Which Kingdom are You From?

I have been incredibly challenged recently.  Do I live for self or for someone other than myself?  This is not an unfamiliar question for anyone?  Most people have had to answer this question indirectly or directly before.

Q:  Do You Live For Yourself In…

  • pursuit of personal happiness
  • gain of possessions
  • earning a position

Q:  Do You Live For Someone Else In…

  • sacrifice of personal gain
  • giving of your resources
  • living in humilty

I know that I struggle in these areas.  My life declares so many days,

that the kingdom i am a part of is about me.  Other days it seems I half-heartedly surrender my kingdom to someone greater than I.  Romans 12:1 gives an incredible “therefore” moment.  It reminds us that God’s mercy should move us to living sacrifice.  That our lives, in worship, become transformed to something else…by someone else.

When it comes to Jesus…you have to ask yourself this…

Which Kingdom are You From?

The Kingdom of “Me”   or the The Kingdom of Christ.
