Book reading from Rediscovering the Kingdom: Chapter One, Discovering the Origin and Purpose of Man

Scripture Reading: Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30).


These simple words changed my life again for they fully described what I was seeing with my eyes. Religion is hard work. We will never rest until we find the Kingdom. Religion is the toil of mankind in his search for the Kingdom.


To understand the past and future of man and to appreciate the present state of man’s journey through time, it is crucial to consider God’s original purpose and plan for His creation. God’s purpose in the beginning was to:

Establish a family of spirit sons, not servants;
Establish a kingdom, not a religious organization;
Establish a kingdom of kings, not subjects;
Establish a commonwealth of citizens, not religious members;
Establish relationship with man, not a religion; Extend his heavenly government to earth; and Influence earth from heaven through mankind.

Reflection Question:
1. What is Jesus' yoke for you?
