Everyday Kingdom Belongs
The kingdom of God belongs to real and everyday people who aren’t trying to look good or impress anybody, even themselves. When you begin to really understand the grace of God and His purpose for coming to earth to save you, you realize there’s nothing you can do to earn His love. You realize, “you’re not enough” but by His forgiveness and grace you are made worthy and then yes, “you’re enough.” We are all sinners and in desperate need of God and not our good works.
Real people with real everyday lives that are messy are those who the kingdom of God belongs to. They’re not planning on how they can call attention to themselves, worrying about how their actions will be interpreted or wondering if they will get gold sticker stars for their behavior. Jesus gets us. He loves us and we don’t need to worry about faking it or trying to pretend that we get it. He loves us and welcomes as we are…everyday.
