God rescued us from the dark power of Satan and brought us into the kingdom of his dear Son. (Colossians 1:13 CEV)
Without any doubt, the Kingdom of Christ is the Kingdom of God. It is the way of salvation, resulting to eternal life. Oh, what great power God has shown when He came to this world to save us. He came humbly, unnoticed by many – though it was announced beforehand by prophets and angels. He lived a simple life, giving us the model of an upright and obedient life. All His 33 years on earth has been according to a purpose. That purpose is to establish His kingdom on earth and through it, save us. He fought victoriously against Satan who captured us with his lies. Satan was defeated on the cross in Calvary. We were released from bondage, forgiven for our sins, and redeemed us from the penalty of death. He was resurrected from the dead, giving us new spirit in Him. How can we not value Christ’s sufferings and death? How can we not serve Him so faithfully? How can we not love Him as much as He loved us? We live and will live forever because of Christ’s saving power. Let us bless the Lord and praise His Holy name.
