The Kingdom of God is Like...

A place where the King and Lord cares about the oppressed, the marginalized, the fatherless and the afflicted and he gives encouragement, redemption, hope and freedom.



"You hear, O LORD, the desire of the afflicted;
you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,

defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
in order that man, who is of the earth, may terrify no more."
Psalm 10:17-18

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." 1 Peter 5:6-7

This is the kind of kingdom the world truly wants, but much of the world doesn't know that God's kingdom is truly like this. They haven't seen this light amidst the darkness.

"...but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God." -Jesus

Too true. I think if more Christians were to try and live this kingdom out to like a tenth of our ability then people would not be able to deny the truth and glory of God.
