SUB-THEME: God’s Reign 2

TOPIC: God’s Reign on Earth

TEXTS:  Col 3:12-17; Rev 3:20

Col 3:12-17 "12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."

Rev 3:20 "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

i. to study how God whose throne is in heaven does reign on earth and

ii. to expound on the manner of His reign on earth.



The stunning question that can arise from today’s topic is: how could God whose throne is in heaven, reigns at the same time on earth? Before Jesus Christ left the world, He promised us His peace (John 14:27) and always to be with us till the end of the age. Matt 28:20. The reign of God is a peaceful one and it is witnessed wherever His virtues are allowed in peoples’ hearts and livelihood. We can see from our Bible passage (Col 3:12-17) the godly virtues that easily lead to peaceful co-existence; which is an evidence of God’s reign in people’s hearts. How then can we achieve these virtues? Let’s study together for more exposition.

1. From our Bible passage (Col 3:12-17) How can you justify the fact that God whose throne is in heaven reigns on earth?-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. How can God reign in our world? Joel 2:12-13; Jam 4:8; 1Pet 1:22; Rev 3:20. ---------------------------------

3. How do you understand Jam 4:1-2 in line with what is happening in our contemporary world? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Does it mean that God is no more on earth? If not, why are wickedness and ungodliness reigning? Ps 2:2-3. ---------------------------------------------------------

4. As Christians, how can we be factors of God’s reign on earth? Phil 4:5-7; Col 3:16; 1Pet 2:11-12.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


CONCLUSION: Despite the fact that God’s Throne is in heaven, He also rules on earth when we forsake sinful habits, surrender our lives to Him and allow Him in our hearts. Therefore, the more we allow God in our hearts, the more we enjoy His peaceful reign in our world.


FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The more we surrender to the Lordship of Christ, the more we enjoy His peaceful reign on earth.


MEMORY VERSE: Rev 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me”.
