In the United States alone, there are an abundance of cultures. Worldwide it would be in the thousands. I am speaking of the way people choose to live and worship. There are many different religions and political leaders and their parties, looking to control the masses. But when you become born again of the Spirit of God, you become a citizen of His Kingdom. You become filled with His Spirit—meaning His Word. You are no longer of the present world as you may know it. You are not part of this world or its cultures. Your citizenship and its culture have changed. It is very important that we study the Word of the Lord God in order for us to know His Will. One complete body to present to the King. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1 Culture is the way we live, behave and conduct our life. It is the way one thinks, which will cause them to live a certain way.
When you live in a Kingdom culture, you realize that there is only one King and God. We aren’t influenced by outside forces. We know He has all power and authority, both here on earth and in heaven. And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth”. Matthew 28:18 The Lord God’s Constitution produces a culture on how to live our lives. The key component is your faith in Him and being full of His Word. It is your faith that pleases Him. In God’s Constitution it reads: But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
There are many religious leaders that sell books on faith. Your purchases line their pockets and caused them to be financially well off. But keep in mind, faith is our culture, it is how Kingdom citizens live and operate in this world. It is our way of life. Skip the middlemen and go right to the source for your knowledge. Read God’s Word and listen to the Holy Spirit for enlightenment. So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you; For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Luke 11:9-10
To those who are in right-standing with the King, ambassador Paul made this statement: For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17
Far too many Christians depend on religious leaders to preach to them and show them the way. But King Jesus made this statement: “If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.". . . But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:15-18, 26-27
In order for you to operate in the Kingdom culture, you first must have a transformation of the mind. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 NLT No books that religious minded leaders want you to purchase can do that for you. It is only by His Word and the leading of the Governor that is the Holy Spirit.
When you are full of the Lord God’s Word and the Holy Spirit, everywhere you go, the Kingdom culture goes with you. Jesus replied, “All who love Me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and We will come and make Our home with each of them. Anyone who doesn’t love Me will not obey Me. And remember, My words are not My own. What I am telling you is from the Father who sent Me. John 14:23-24 NLT It will change your world!
Remember, your greatest asset is your faith in the King.
