Every building is built on a foundation. Jesus warned not to build on sand. The kingdom of God is the only kingdom that will remain. We would do well to understand it. "The kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ." Why is understanding this kingdom vital to our learning to reign with Christ... not just in the future but on earth now! The foundation of the kingdom of God is His RIGHTEOUSNESS. One of the most outstanding truths of the bible is that God is righteous in making us righteous. Webster defines righteousness as the ability to perfectly keep His moral and biblical law. Good news! If you can perfectly keep the law in every point, you don't need Christ. The problem is, if you offend in one point you are guilty of breaking all the law. We are hopelessly lost! We have utterly failed. We are condemned to hell forever! WAIT! let's flip the coin over. If we, by faith, embrace the righteousness of Christ and receive it completely we are declared absolutely perfect, holy and complete in the Father's presence! Incredible? Seem too good to be true? Well, that is why God calls it the good news of the gospel of the kingdom. That is why this plan was birthed in the mind of God even before He made man. Romans says that before the world was laid, he already said their would be a way of making us complete and holy in His sight through the righteousness of Christ.
