Kris shares steps to successful living in the Kingdom. Be present and live in the “now,” so that you can receive the fullness of what God has planned for you in each moment. Keep thankfulness in the forefront of your mind, remembering that it was by grace, while we were yet sinners, that God chose us. Focus on your vision for your life, because this will give your process and pain a purpose.
In Matthew 5:43-48 Jesus exchanges the Old Covenant for the New, explaining that God "sends rain on the just and unjust." God's mercy is for both the righteous and sinners. The church must remember that we are on the other side of the cross. God did not send His Son to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
