The Kingdom of God is Within You

The Kingdom of God is Within You

John 3: 3-6
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the
second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

In this passage Jesus is talking with Nicodemus about the new birth. Jesus was explaining to him the process. First you have to be born of a woman. This is the gateway into the earth. Secondly you have to be born of the Spirit of God which is the new birth when you accept Jesus as your personal saviour and make Him the Lord of your life.

Paul brings to light in 1 Corinthians that we are the dwelling place of the Holy Ghost after we make Jesus the lord of our life.

1 Corinthians 3:16
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

On October 1st 1978 at 1 AM I made Jesus the Lord of my life. I would not trade any amount of money or fame for the life I have had since I met Jesus. He is the best thing that ever happened to me.

Jesus made the supreme sacrifice. He told His disciples that He needed to go away so He could send the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Truth back to us. We need to give Him thanks for what He did for us. Below are a few scripture references that bear this out.

John 14: 16-17
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may
abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not,
neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

John 15: 26
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even
the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16: 7, 13
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for
he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will
shew you things to come.

Glory to God! Give praise unto Jesus, He is worthy of all our praise.
