Hebrews 12:28 KJV
whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
New King James Version (NKJV)
28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we mayserve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.
But the author of Hebrews is speaking of another kingdom that cannot be moved that is our inheritance. It is a kingdom that cannot be shaken. It is a kingdom that is safe and secure and beyond the influence of fallen men. It is a kingdom where the greatest will be the servant of all and its citizens, little children.
We are receiving a kingdom right now that cannot be shaken. Jesus taught us to pray in the Lord’s prayer (Matthew 6:9-11) …your kingdom come, your will be done as it is in heaven. May we never take this kingdom lightly. May the fear of the Lord fill us with an ever increasing awareness of this unshakeable kingdom that we are receiving NOW!
May we be reminded of who we are and who we belong to as we read this Scripture passage that just precedes today’s promise in Hebrews 12: 22-23 (a)… But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. NIV ~ Barry Adams
