Meditation Thought: “ Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:1)
You shall receive by revelation what is impossible to receive by explanation. Only through faith exercised in trust can revelation be released. And only through belief in the promises of the Word can faith be exercised. Assuming the premise that the Word is the Truth, and acting upon that premise moves your mind and your spirit into a hidden realm – the realm of the Kingdom. You can, at will, move in and out of the Kingdom from the world. But through the conscious seeking of the constant infilling of the Holy Spirit, you can dwell in the Kingdom and commune with the world at the same time.
Think of your choosing of a place to live: you can be a citizen of the United States, but still reside in another country. Or you can choose, as a citizen, to live within your own country, with all its attendant privileges and protection and compatibility. As a believer, your home is the Kingdom, and you keep your residence within it by the opening up of yourself to the filling of the Holy Spirit.
You can still communicate and affect and be affected by the citizens of the other countries (the ‘world’) – but your first loyalty is the the Kingdom and your decisions must be based upon your residence within the Kingdom.
The beauty of God’s plan is that your loyalty to the Kingdom does not in any way harm the citizens residing in the world, and, in fact is beneficial to them. At the point where it becomes beneficial to the point that they wish to become citizens of the Kingdom in order to reside in its superior atmosphere, the great commission is being fulfilled.
