The Kingdom of Light
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
If we believe in Christ, we have been delivered from the domain of darkness and delivered into a kingdom of light, the kingdom of Jesus Christ. My prayer for you is that you would be a part of this kingdom, that you would be reconciled to the ultimate King through Jesus Christ.
This kingdom is a kingdom that is far greater than any kingdom in the world, because our King is greater than any earthly king. He is a good and kind King. He is the most perfect and loving King. He is a King that protects His people and makes everything work out for good for those that love him (Romans 8:28). He is a King that gave up his life willingly for those that are rebels to His reign. He is a King that loves His enemies. He is a King that created all things, and in Him all things hold together (Colossians 1:17).
This King is sovereign over a kingdom of light, and He welcomes you to join His eternal kingdom.
