Talk is cheap, but God’s Kingdom is not.
Paul’s words to the church in Corinth is a reminder to us that God’s Kingdom is not a trifling matter. Talk is cheap, but God’s Kingdom is not.
The term “Kingdom of God” basically can be referred to as God’s will, rule or sovereignty as manifested or made visible on the earth. It’s the rule of an eternal, sovereign God over all the universe.
In 1 Corinthians 4:20, Paul is admonishing the church in Corinth because they got caught up with their bragging rights and comparing/judging others (including Paul).
However, Paul let them know plainly that their arrogant words meant nothing. Why? Because the Kingdom of God is not about how much you talk a good talk, but the power behind that talk.
The ultimate visible power of the Kingdom of God manifested on this earth was Jesus’ resurrection.
When Jesus spoke there was power in His words.
The Kingdom of God was made visible by the work He did healing and setting people free from themselves. The ultimate visible power of the Kingdom of God manifested on this earth was Jesus’ resurrection.
In the midst of everything we’re going through right now, Jesus’ words to Martha in John 11:25 are still true and very powerful. Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.
Now that’s POWER! Be Encouraged and Be safe!
