31st Day of Lent

I am committed to being true to God's Kingdom within me.
Jesus knew what the Psalmist had implied when he said, "Be still, and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10). Now he knew himself to be an expression of God, or the activity of God-life and intelligence pressing itself into visiblity. Now he knew that the Kingdom of God, the wealth of the Universe, was within the depth-potential within him.
We don't know how this great breakthrough was actually accomplished in Jesus, how long the process took, or when He achieved self-mastery. But we know when He made His appearance at the Jordan River to be baptized by John. He was a committted and polished teacher with the amazing message that "The Kingdome of God is within you."
Matthew 3:16 And when Jesus had been baptized, just as he came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him.
