Kingdom Kid 

What does it mean to be a ” Kingdom Kid ” ?

Let’s excavate :

You are humble .

You are not easily moved.

You are steadfast .

You are not a part of the rat race .

You have been set apart for a High Call .

You are not ashamed of your scars .

You are Chosen .

You are not working for your glory , but His .

You are gifted beyond measure .

You are not for death and destruction .

You are for signs , wonders and miracles .

You are not deceived by snares and temptation.

You have eyes to see and ears to hear .

You do not work out of selfish ambition .

You expand and further The Kingdom of God .

You are not built to live mediocre .

You are led by The Spirit .

You are not afraid of persecution that comes your way when you uphold your Faith .

You are graced to handle every occasion .

You are not a spiritual coward .

You are willing to work with your weaknesses in His Strength, not yours .

You do not seek validation from the World.

You are here to Serve the World .

You do not buy into the lie that you  do not measure up .

You stand in the royal dignity of a Child of The Most High God .

You do not confuse excellence with perfection .

You know Perfection is the Name  of God .

You do not let bitterness take root .

You are quick to forgive .

You know you have treasures on the inside of you , seeds of greatness .

You trust in Divine Right Order and Timing .

You are guarded by the angels of The Most High .

You are not ashamed of your flaws .

You ARE His Child ,

Chosen

Accepted

Loved

Cherished

Protected

Recreated

You ARE His image bearer ,

And in THAT folks ,

You ARE a ” Kingdom Kid ” . 

I Hope

I hope i can accurately assert my views on this one .

I think in our day and age , we have witnessed more wars and global turmoil over organised religion than anything else .

So if you ask me if I love God , the answer is an emphatic , unashamed , unapologetic YES !

If you ask me if I think God cares for organised religion ?

The answer is NO.

I personally believe ( and this is truly my rendition ! ) , that God had to manifest in various forms on The Planet to cover a wide epoch of time , and thus we have a disintegration of Religion into what we understand as ” organised religion ” except that it has only served to bring about more disharmony in our inherent brotherhood as God’s integrated children and army . 

As His Children folks , we are obliged to fight wars not amongst ourselves, but against the darkness that threatens to take our joy , our peace , our love , our dignity , our Unity .

That is a war God Himself is a part of .

And that is a war God Himself fights for you .

My encouragement , as I write totally on impulse , is that whether you are a Hindu , a Jew , a Parsi , a Christian , a Muslim  , a Sikh …

… know that we serve One Integrated Father , whose very heart beats for unity and bleeds in disunity .

He wants you to not just have ” religion ” per se , but a breathing , active , engaged , organic relationship with Him ; so he can heal the darkest crevices of your soul and shape you into His Image by the day , a brand New Creation who is used by Him for your good and His Glory .

We are His Spartan Warriors ! 

His Chosen , His Elect .

To be One People .

One People , honouring their own respective karmic religion , but above all else , glorifying the Oneness of their Creator by cementing and celebrating the Oneness amongst themselves !

A Oneness that truly brings a smile to His Holy Face !

So today , whether you believe in Jesus , Allah , Waheguru or Lord Shiva ; I hope you can find the faith to reconcile ALL FAITH into ONE , a tribute to acknowledge the Oneness of The One that created it all .

Not so we may fight our wars.

But His .

Grace

A student at the University of Hard Knocks ,

I am obviously a product of Grace . And my suspicion deep down , is that you are too.

Grace.

A term so profound yet so commonly cliched  in conversations tainted with the insecurities and anxieties of the human flesh .

” I was saved by the Grace of God ”

” My marriage was reconciled by Grace ”

” Cancer would have taken me out but for the Grace that saved me ”

” a wretched sinner I was , but for the Grace that blessed me with a new life ”

And on and on we go … the list is endless!

So what is Grace ?

Plainly put , Grace is the power of The Most High to enable and empower us to do with ease what we could never otherwise accomplish in our own strength .

That’s it .

It was a Grace to even articulate that !

Ok. Jokes apart .

Grace , my friends , is your Best Friend Forever .

There have been times in my life when I have had such startling Destiny moments , completely unpremeditated and obviously Divinely Orchestrated , that despite my unbelief , I had to look to the Heavens and acknowledge that I was indeed saved by Grace .

Metaphorically, let’s see :

I did not plan that “chance encounter ” , but it changed my life forever .

Grace.

I did not deserve that promotion at work when my subordinate was putting in more hours than me.

Grace.

I had less than 1% chances of recovery from the widely dreaded motor neuron disease.

Guess what?

Grace .

Your undeserved favour .

Your unmerited privilege . 

Your gift from your Father .

A Testimony to His Unfathomable Love for  you .

What you could not make happen in your own strength , He will make happen in His Grace .

Look back at your own life .

What you felt you could not endure ; that painful , heart breaking, gut wrenchingly hard season in your life ? But you made it somehow ?

Grace .

Yes , you had the will , the resilience, the tenacity and the wisdom ; but there was a Grace for you to walk those gifts out and power through !

Friends ,

Grace is Power .

Grace is Freedom.

Grace takes the pressure off you .

You feel you don’t measure up , are way too flawed to be used by Him , or struggle with feeling unworthy and imperfect ? Those secret feelings we all grapple with and masquerade?

Grace covers you , and me . It is the strength in our weakness, the joy in our gloom , the peace in our turmoil , the ease in our effort .

Indescribable.

I tried though.

Wonder if I was Graced for it ?
