Place and Condition

"For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, 
and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 
in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins." 
Colossians 1:13-14

As believers in Christ, we are brought to a certain place and condition.

We are rescued and then transferred to His kingdom. This brings us to a place. A safe place. A beautiful place where we fit in perfectly. It's the kingdom of His beloved Son. 

We are redeemed and forgiven which brings us to a certain condition. A condition of being cleansed and recognized as His own. We have our own unique function in His kingdom. 

Both inside and out, in our surroundings and positioning, as well as our inwards thoughts, feelings and motivations, we are brought to a place in Him that is overwhelmingly peaceful. :| (read that again!)

The kingdom of God is a stable place, protected by the Almighty. He upholds all things by the Word of His power. His Word is more secure than the strongest fortress here on earth. Yet His kingdom is also beautiful, interesting, full of all that He is, and you are an intricate part! You are in this place and condition because of your faith in Jesus!

Hebrews 1:3; Colossians 2:10, Romans 14:17
