If I was to ask you if you were fit for the kingdom, you'd probably look at me funny and say "of course I am, what kind of question is that"? Well what if I was to tell you that this question is more about your commitment, than your hearts condition. Would you still say yes?
Today's church has been asked this very thing according to The book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. He tells most of the Churches that he has somewhat against them because of their fitness for the kingdom. Listen to what he says to Ephesus return to your first works and repent. To Smyrna he says do not be afraid of persecution. To Pergamum he says repent of idolatry and sexual immorality that has crept in. He says to Thyatira to be sanctified and hold on to his promises. He says to Sardis wake up and fortify his teachings in their lives before they are too worldly and miss out on his return. He says to Philadelphia that they should keep holding on to what they have done in Christ and don't lose it. And to Laodicea, he says don't be as destitute as the rest of the world is;but become true disciples of him.
We can't be satisfied with the status quo when it comes to the kingdom. We must always be like Paul and press towards the mark of achievement for the King. We must be striving the furthering the kingdom of Christ. If not then we are not fit for the kingdom! Are you fit for the kingdom?
We'd love to hear from you please comment and we'll be glad to respond, with a word of encouragement!!!
