Tagged With: / Exercises for Spiritual Health and Fitness

When we were born again, we become citizens of Heaven. Salvation was when we entered and began to live in the Kingdom of God, while still living here on Earth. That tension between our citizenship in Heaven, and our stay here on Earth is what so much of the New Testament is written about.

1.    Jesus Taught that Salvation was Coming Under God’s Kingdom & Rule
2.    The Apostles Taught that Salvation was Coming Under God’s Kingdom & Rule
3.    Disciple-makers Understand that Salvation was Coming Under God’s Kingdom & Rule
