When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are sealed with His Holy Spirit Who guarantees our eternal life in heaven. We are assured of the promise of everlasting life, but what promises are we given here? Are we assured that the promise of everlasting life and power of His resurrection starts here on earth?
Absolutely! Most of us just do not know how to live it out. We have the ability to live in victory…over sin, over death, over the bonds of captivity, right here, right now.
Jesus tells us in Luke 17:20-21, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.” If you have come to know Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, the kingdom of God has already begun within you. That is why we are told to pray, “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” We are His walking, talking, living will(s) on earth as it is in heaven. We are in this world but not of this world any longer because we are of Christ’s kingdom instead.
We see with the eyes of our heart in faith and we live for a different purpose. And in Jesus Christ, all authority has been given to Him in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18) for us to go to make disciples that live under His reign and power, instead of the god of this world.
We have the power through the name of Christ to live in victory and to live in freedom right here on earth.
