“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost: that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” Henry David Thoreau
When reading that quote, I am brought to see the glorious castle, we who are in Christ are apart of; The Kingdom of Heaven. For although it is not a physical place of the earth it can still be seen clearly by those around us through the foundation we build our lives on. We are able to bring our Kingdom down to earth through our lives(our vessels), our actions, our words and the love of Christ we possess which shines through us. For although our hearts may be yearing for His Kingdom and our works may be investing into that heavenly place, we must be a means in which we bring it to earth. We must be Kingdom Bringers-bringing the Kingdom we stand in (in our Spirit) to be that which we stand in, in all aspects of our life (our flesh). Dying to our flesh so that His Holy Spirit may live fully through us; shining His Kingdom from within us outwardly, so that it may be clearly see by all and all will be able to have a glimpse into what they too can recieve. For others to recieve a glimpse of the beautiful Kingdom we are apart of through Christ, we must be standing on a foundation built on: God’s Word, His truths, His promises-standing in our identity in Christ and living through our inheritance in which Christ died for us to have.
For if we do not have a foundation built and set on the principles of the Kingdom itself, then how can the Kingdom of Heaven be seen on earth for what it is? “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.” 1 Corinthian 4:20
” Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10 When having our foundation built full on God, then His will and fullness may be done and manifested through us here on earth as it is in heaven. Bringing the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth.
