Since the Kingdom of God (KoG) is invisible, should we assume that the substance of the Kingdom would be the same? Yes and no. Here is a secret; Love is the substance of the kingdom; God is love. Now that we have just celebrated Valentine’s Day, I hope you noticed how plentiful God is. After all, for less than $5 anybody could have expressed love to someone and most receiving that expression of love would have willingly receive it with joy.
When we talk about God we are talking about eternity and infinity. Just because something is inexhaustible does not mean it is cheap. That may not appear to be true in the material world, because we tend to place value on things that are limited in supply. And so I submit as our first piece of evidence “God’s Love”. This substance is so available it makes no sense to try to lock it up. From the ground we walk on, to the planets in our solar system that help sustain life on earth and the very flesh we live in are all made of this stuff called love.
To prove how plentiful love is think back to Valentine’s Day. The inability to express love is considered a failure at the most basic level of our existence. We are not talking about laying down your life, making a $1000 contribution, or even giving up a major part of your day. On this day you could have given the simplest expression and it was accepted. A simple Hersey’s kiss or a phone call to simply say the words “Happy Valentine’s Day” was sufficient.
As Christians; the death by crucifixion is the one piece of evidence that has clearly stated God’s love for all mankind. That single act, a limited edition, a once and for all demonstration, a never need to be repeated statement that covers the bill for us materialistic minded people. Spiritually “let there be light” should have been enough, because that act by Christ created the relationship in the beginning.
So, I submit LOVE as our first piece of evidence of this spiritual KoG. For people who are conscience of the Kingdom love is the only currency. This is the stuff we give away and use to entice others to become conscience of their true home. If earthly currency is proof of existence for previous civilizations, then love can be the proof of this KoG. After all love is what we are known for.
1 John 4:8 (NKJV) He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
John 13:35 (NKJV) By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.
1 John 4:16 (NKJV) And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
Please comment or submit evidence:
- If you revealed the Kingdom with an act of love.
