The gospel of the Kingdom

20140315-135452.jpg

The gospel is not for the strong
The good news is not for those who can go further
The blessing is not for those who go a little harder 
The benefit of grace is not for those who can stay a little longer
By the consciousness of their own military capability.

The gospel is the gospel of the Kingdom
Another Kingdom.
It’s from a heavenly origin;
Not of fleshly substance
A gift that is power and enablement.

The gospel is for those who focus is on Salvation Himself
His life will go a little further
His Grace will work a little harder 
His righteousness reigns you to stay a little longer.

Reigning over the flesh.
This is the good news of the Kingdom.

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (II Corinthians 12:9 NKJV)

Colossians 2:8 “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ”.

For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.) (Romans 5:17 NKJV)

Bruising of the tender parts

And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty, but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it, (I Corinthians 12:23, 24 NKJV)

It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. (Luke 17:2 NKJV)
 

To dishonour the honourable
To abuse it’s innocence
A forever fact
Is an evil cradling.

The offence of sexual abuse
Bruises the tender parts…
Of the heart
And soul
And mind
And smile.

But healing comes from the God-view
That the dishonoured has greater honour
That He is the avenger
For those whom lack.

And there is much provision that heals…
The heart
The soul
The mind
The smile.

___________

To those dishonoured…you have great honour from the One most entitled to give it.
