Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again.’ John 3:5, 7.

Entering into the Kingdom of God is a critical issue no one should despise or ignore. It is a matter that calls for deep reflection and should attract urgent attention from everyone.

The concept of the Kingdom of God is not primarily one of space, territory, or politics as in a national kingdom, but instead, one of kingly rule, reign, and sovereign control. So, the Kingdom of God is wherever the authority of God is recognized and the Lordship of Jesus Christ is acknowledged, and His will is obeyed.

Entering into the Kingdom of therefore is a divine privilege that is granted to everyone to experience direct access into the presence of God, live joyfully under His supreme authority, and enjoy the abundant, satisfying, full, and overflowing life designed by God for all His children, and someday live eternally with God after this world.

While it is God’s desire for all mankind to enter into His Kingdom, the truth also must be told, entrance into it is not automatic. You must be born of water and the Spirit. In order words, it is not hereditary.

Everyone who desires to enter into God’s Kingdom must repent of their sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit – the indwelling presence and outpouring of the Holy Spirit that brings new life and the supernatural possibility to live in that newness of life forever. May the Lord grant you the divine willingness to surrender your life absolutely to Jesus Christ and His Holy to live in you to produce the godly character that will qualify you to experience the Kingdom of God within you. Amen. Good morning.
