We are Kingdom Dwellers even on Earth.
The Apostle Paul makes this amazing statement in Galatians 2:20,
“My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me”. NLT
In Christ, we are no longer citizens of the world. We live from a different perspective and a different atmosphere. Much like a scuba diver breathes the atmosphere of the surface while in the ocean. Kingdom Living gets us out of the atmosphere we were so use to. Now the scuba mask of Heaven will help us to see and move in a different way.
Acts 17:28, “For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring”. NLT
He is our atmosphere! I live by His life-His perspective and power. We literally become a visible form from another realm.
John 17:14-16, “I have given them your word. And the world hates them because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. They do not belong to this world any more than I do”. NLT
