The Kingdom of God is incredibly different from any kingdom of this world. One of the major ways this is so is in the way that God’s Kingdom includes everyone in its benefits. When it comes to God’s love, no one is left as an outsider!

“I pray, Lord God, that you just teach us how to in our thoughts and in our words be humble. Help us, Lord God, to see all others’ sin as a mere dust particle compared to our sin, which is a tree trunk….
Lord God…set them free from the bondage of judgment, the bondage of religion, the bondage of self-righteousness, that false source of life. Set them free from that demonic idol, and liberate them to live in the freedom of the ollie-ollie-in-free kingdom.
And to wish for every person on this planet, including their worst enemy, including our national enemy, to wish for them ‘Father forgive them, they know not what they do.’
And have this desire to see all not receive vengeance, but receive the year of jubilee.
Let it be done. This is your kingdom.
And we give you the praise….”
