Kings and kingdoms

And to him was given dominion
    and glory and a kingdom,
that all peoples, nations, and languages
    should serve him;
his dominion is an everlasting dominion,
    which shall not pass away,
and his kingdom one
    that shall not be destroyed.

(Daniel 7:14)

A lot of kingdoms are existing as of today where the most powerful people in a specific country are ruling. Kings and queens reign and the throne is passed from one generation to the next of kin. But all of these kingdoms will soon pass and only one kingdom shall stand forever—that is the Kingdom of God in Heaven.

The Son of Man is given the dominion to rule over Heaven and Earth. If people bow down and respect kings and queens, how much more should we serve the King of kings and Lord of lords? However, as we try to assess ourselves, we will be discouraged to know the fact that sometimes we are taking the Lord for granted. More is the time we do spent to things that are unworthy than reading God’s words or obeying His will. He just asked a day for us to visit His house yet we are almost always lazy to go to church on Sundays and would rather spend the day sleeping. And how many times did we disobey Him and succumbed to temptations? Countless times.

Remember that Christ’s dominion will be everlasting. Whether we serve Him or not, He is still God and nothing can take that away from Him. It will be our lost if we choose to leave Him and try to experience other kingdoms. He will always be standing still.

To those who will give Him the highest glory, despite the tough situation of life, a great future awaits because God is in control. Him who has the dominion over all things can command anything to do what He wills and it shall be executed.

The choice is within our hands. Choose wisely whom do you want to have the dominion over you and your life.
