Ruling in Perfection
What would it be like if politicians never lied? What if you could have absolute faith in everything that the government ever said? What if you could believe every word and every promise that the president or the prime minister of your country said to you? Then perhaps it could be said that you had entered into the Kingdom of God.
Every kingdom has a king, or some type of ruler. The Kingdom of God is no exception––except that its ruler is no ordinary man or woman: it’s the Lord Jesus Christ. Just before the Lord was born, the angel Gabriel declared his role:
“And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.” Luke 1:31-33
