Calvary Christian Center G-12 Administration – Life Notes Pastor: Phillip G. Goudeaux 01/05/2014 “Keys to Living in the Kingdom of God” “Seek His Way of Doing Things” Matthew 6:33 Luke 9:57-62 Luke 4:43 Acts 1:1-3 • A major problem to living in the “Kingdom of God” is learning how to hear and obey God • The thing that causes most people to have an issue is: the spirit of ignorance and disobedience • That spirit is the thing that is holding people back from receiving the greater blessings that God has in store for them • God wants you to get your life moving in the right direction • Seek means to crave, to hunger, to strongly desire • In Matthew 6:33, first means to make God a priority in your life • Because of the priority, there will be competition - You will have some challenges coming against you • The word first also means to compete • Whenever you seek something, you will come up against competition • The enemy does not want you to be successful in what you make a priority • Realize that competition is going to come when you make priorities in your life • God has a different way than Satan for doing things • There are two kingdoms in existence: Kingdom of God - kingdom of Satan • You must choose which kingdom you want to belong to • Recognition of God is not enough • You must start making some priorities in your life or you will just be manipulated and taken advantage of in every area of your life • Or you will never experience all the things that is available to you in the Kingdom of God • The word key is a principle • Principle is a fundamental law to function or operate with in order to experience the greater things that God has for you • You should unlock at least one door in your life during the year 2014 • Jesus focused on one thing that would change your life – “Kingdom of God living” • You must learn that you came out of the Kingdom of Satan (the world system) – You now have to learn how to live in the Kingdom of God • There are people who love God and are in the Kingdom of God, but have never opened up one door to experience the greater blessings that God has in store for them • You can have a key, but if you don’t know what the key goes to – It will not make difference in your life • If you will just learn the keys to the Kingdom of God, everything will change in your life • Stop talking about the keys and start opening some doors with them • You cannot operate in the Kingdom of God with your old Kingdom of Darkness keys • All the keys to the Kingdom of God and the knowledge you need to use them, is found in the Bible – Read the Word of God • Start unlocking new doors in your life today
