The Kingdom of God is within each of us. Our conscience constantly alerts us to the ways of the Kingdom regardless of how far one is relating in life from the Kingdom or deciding to do acts that are evil. Jesus Who God has sent a Comforter in His name has overcome the world, and Jesus is now our standard and guide unto God’s Kingdom of Heaven. This is a gracious act by our Heavenly Father.
Man can not work it self into the Kingdom of God due to his imperfect state, greed, and corruption in the heart. The letter of the law kills in that it condemns and names sins. Man is always under the law. The flesh is bound by nature thereby limiting man from the pure Spirit of God.
Man must have a mediator to save himself from the bounds of sin and the flesh. God sent the Son of God for this very purpose. Man is hopelessly displaced from the Kingdom of God as they struggle to be little gods; power hunger beings. Jesus died to pay each and everyone’s sin debt. As Jesus has overcome the world each and everyone can let Jesus have his way and carry us into the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus said, “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”
