It’s our duty as a Christian and disciple of Jesus to help in building the Holy Kingdom of God. It may sound like a huge task, but it’s easier than you think.
You can help build the Kingdom by following key principles in your home, personal life, workplace, community, and church. That’s what I’m going to share with you today.
1. Building the Kingdom of God at Home
First, you should build the kingdom at home. You need to become kingdom minded to do this. This happens by renewing your mind.
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is good and acceptable and the perfect will of God.” – Romans 12:2
You have to be the godly, kingdom-minded example within your home because wherever you lead, your family will follow.
Being Kingdom minded will lead to Biblical guidance and Kingdom actions. Tweet
2. Building the Kingdom of God in Your Personal Life
Second, you should build the kingdom in your personal life by being a holy example to your friends. This won’t always be easy because sometimes you’ll need to remove some people from your life.
Some people are meant to only be a part of your life for a season. The most important thing is that you need to keep Christ-minded/kingdom-minded people in your immediate circle of friends because they have a huge impact on who you become.
Remember, if you have a fruit basket filled with apples, the rotten apples make the good ones go bad.
3. Building the Kingdom of God at Work
Third, you are a light for Christ at work and your actions need to reflect that. That doesn’t mean that you have to speak about Christianity or religion at work or force the Bible on people.
However, your co-workers and supervisors should be able to see Christ in you! You should be a shining example of Christ at work and stand out from the rest of the crowd.
It’s not what you say, it’s what you do. It’s not who you are, it’s Christ within you. Tweet
4. Building the Kingdom of God in Your Community
Fourth, you can build the kingdom in your community. You can do so by meeting a need in the community either directly or indirectly.
One thing you can pray about is creating a non-profit organization to accomplish something that God has placed on your heart.
If that’s not your thing, you can give to a charity or volunteer at a community center in an indirect effort.
No matter which way you choose to meet a community need, do something to improve your environment. It’s a great way to be a light wherever you are.
5. Building the Kingdom of God at Church
Fifth, you should build the kingdom at your church. You can create and/or teach classes based on Scripture and biblical principles.
Another idea is that you can become a greeter. By doing so you’ll be sharing your talents with the church as you should find your place within the body of Christ.
You need to take a higher position than being a non-serving member of your church. God has called us all to serve his holy Kingdom in some way.
In conclusion, we all have to do our part in building the holy kingdom. There are many areas where this can be done. You can make a difference in someone else’s life.
We are called to be disciples of Jesus which means that we need to bring others to Him. A wise pastor once said, “When you get to heaven, who can you say you helped get there?”
Do you have any ideas on how to build the Kingdom of God?
