How is this kingdom mission accomplished? Jesus says that it begins first not by praying for the harvest but for the laborers into the harvest. As our Lord is the Lord of the harvest, we are to pray to Him that the gospel of the heavenly kingdom be advanced to every inch of the earthly kingdom.
In considering the eternal value of the Word of God, let us not cheapen it in our mind or the minds of others, treating it as if it is just another literary work of antiquity. Let us hold it in high and reverent esteem with a firm persuasion that it is the very Word of God.
The kingdom of heaven is flourishing on earth since its inauguration but is disregarded by the world. It advances while sin, wickedness, and rebellion continue, but as the advancement continues there will be a conclusion, the close of the age (Matt. 13:39), and the consummation of the kingdom of heaven.
We were redeemed for a kingdom of permanent value. So, invest your life in it. For, our Lord Jesus Christ invested His life for us.
