You are holding a valuable and worthwhile expository tool that unfolds a fundamental theme – the Kingdom of God. The author labors with vigor to show that we have perhaps failed to examine the various aspects of the Kingdom of God. God wants you to incorporate the Life of Christ in order for you to discover a new, deeper experience of His incredible self-sacrificial life, unfolding in your journey with Him.

This powerful book addresses how you can have a kingdom transformation in your own life while bringing eternal joy and liberation to the lives of others. Journey with the author as he explains the two kingdoms at work on this earth, why it is important to live in God’s kingdom, how to remain a citizen of God’s kingdom, and how that makes a difference in our lives and the lives of other people.
Sin, represented by Satan’s Kingdom of force, bondage, lies, hatred, and death, has caused a breach between us and a loving God; but God has sent His son to restore that breach and provide us with an abundant, transformed life of love. When we accept His sin offering, we are adopted into the Kingdom of God and experience freedom from the bondage of sin.
However, being a citizen of His kingdom is more than merely accepting that the King is on the throne; it is allowing Him to transform us and transform the world through us. It is a daily surrendering of our will and asking him to dwell within us, helping us to see others in the same way He does—not judging people, but desiring their presence in the Kingdom. In this Kingdom, the divine nature takes hold of the human nature and transforms it so that we can reach hearts and minds with the love and liberty of the King. In this way, we reflect the King’s holiness to the world by a transformed character of love. This is only possible by walking in the light of the King on a daily basis. Each chapter ends with thoughtful questions that will help you grasp the material. The questions are also useful for study group discussions and book clubs. Well worth it!
