Kingdom Mindset 101...Introduction
Today I am beginning a new blog series called 'Kingdom Mindset'. In this series, we will look at the differences between a kingdom mindset versus a natural mindset. Jesus taught us to pray like this '...Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven...' In order to pray this prayer powerfully and effectively, we need to cultivate a mindset that understands what Kingdom really looks like, and how to intentionally relate and then function in that mindset.
A kingdom mindset is much different than the normal, or natural mindset, that we were born with. That's why Jesus told Nicodemus, "you must be born again." (John 3:3) A person cannot know, understand or enter the kingdom until he is born of the Spirit. It's only this rebirth that gives us access to a kingdom mindset, and everything else that is in the kingdom realm.
Because my focus in this series is on kingdom mindset, I am addressing this blog series to those who have already received Jesus as their saviour and have been born again. In John 3:5 Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit." If that is you, then you have the potential to understand and embrace a kingdom mindset.
If you haven't received Jesus as your saviour and been born again, you can do that right now. Just ask Him into your heart to be your saviour and forgive you of your sins. He will do it! You don't have to wait. He loves you!! Please email me and let me know if you've made that decision, or l can pray with you, and we can rejoice together!
We will start the journey into kingdom mindset in the next blog, but today I wanted to lay the foundation and set a precedence for kingdom. Jesus said in Matthew 16:19 "And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." One of the MOST IMPORTANT keys of the kingdom is having the mind of Christ. This is called Kingdom Mindset.
