“I have set my king on Zion, my holy hill.”
Psalm 2:6 RSV
The most important step a person can take on their trek to the Kingdom of Heaven is to first seek to know the King Himself. A person born into the kingdom has a new life with spiritual eyes and ears to respond to the leading of His Spirit. We need to seek the place where the King lives. The only way to please a king is to be an active citizen of His kingdom by obeying and submitting to His authority. Only when you live under the Lordship of the King will you truly be living in the Kingdom.
Prayer builds our relationship with the King and strengthens us to bring our thoughts into line with His perfect will. The Holy Spirit’s purpose on earth is to do this transforming work within our hearts.
The most valuable possession a person can have is a real relationship with Jesus through the Holy Spirit. When we live in this relationship, we are rich, but not with earthly possessions. True riches, in Christ Jesus, are to have a lasting relationship with Him. Everlasting victory comes when we realize that our relationship with Jesus is the most valuable asset we will ever have. Our relationship with God will continue to grow if we continue to obey Him.
