Luke 12:32  “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father is well pleased to give you the kingdom.

God’s pleasure is to give us His Kingdom.  To do that He also gives us all that is necessary for us to come into His Kingdom.  The first thing we need to do to get there is to accept His invitation.  This invitation comes through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.  We must accept Jesus into our hearts, minds and lives and receive His Holy Spirit for there is no other way to God’s Kingdom.  After we do this we start learning how to conduct ourselves in God’s Kingdom.  He has given us a manual of instruction which we have called “The Holy Bible.”  In there are all the instructions we need to learn how to live and work in His Kingdom.  He has also given us a means to communicate with Him through what we call “prayer.”  It is our responsibility to talk to Him and listen to Him and ask Him for what we think we need.  Sometimes what we think we need and what God’s knows we need are  different.  We are to trust Him as a little child trusts the loving parent to know what is best.  Like the little child, sometimes we forget and just look at what we want and throw a temper tantrum.  The parent always forgives the child.  As we grow the temper tantrums cease and we learn to flow.  Let us believe and trust as a little child but also grow in God and learn to walk and work in His Kingdom.
