DAY FOURTEEN – “To Kingdom Come”

“your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10

What if Jesus was doing more than offering the disciples a pattern for prayer? What if He was also showing them the path to kingdom come?

What do I mean?

Look at the prayer with me!

The first step on the path to kingdom come is – SALVATION.

When you pray, “your kingdom come” are you not praying, “I want Your way not mine! You be my King! I renounce my sin, I turn from my sin and surrender the throne to You!”

The kingdom can’t come unless the King comes! The King won’t come if you are on the throne.

Step two on the path to kingdom come is – SANCTIFICATION.

Praying “your will be done” is another way of praying, “I want Your will not mine! I yield my will to Yours! Cleanse me of my selfish desires and fill me with your Holy Spirit!”

The kingdom can’t come when there is rebellion in the kingdom. Unconditional surrender is necessary for His will to be done! You must surrender to His way (Salvation) and to His will (Sanctification).

The third step to kingdom come is – SERVICE.

When God is given full control of your heart, mind and spirit His kingdom has come to you His kingdom will come through you! You will live in heavenly love and make a heavenly difference in people and in circumstances!

I believe this part of the Lord’s Prayer is more than a pattern for praying I think it is a path to spiritual victory!

  1. Have I ever made Jesus the King of my life?
  2. Have I asked God to cleanse me from sin and fill me with His Spirit?
  3. What will I do today to help His kingdom come on earth?

Heavenly Father, I thank You that you can save me from sin and bring Your Kingdom to my life. You be the Savior and Lord of my life today. Fill me with your Holy Spirit today so I can serve in Your love and power. I want your kingdom to come and your will to be done in me and through me this day! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
