Marcus Aurelius, lessons on kingship are you part of a royal priesthood of kings? That means you are being prepared to carry and advance the culture of the Kingdom of God just like a governmental ambassador would. Along the way, you will meet many leaders and some will be in high-level leadership positions. To minister to leaders successfully, you need Kingdom training. This brings me to an example of Emperor Marcus Aurelius. He was no Christian by any means, but he was brought up to be a king.
Power of decisions, everything starts with a decision Your world changes when you decide to change. Decisions determine the quality of your life. Whatever is happening in your life right now has something to do with your past decisions. If you made good decisions, then you are reaping good things. But if you made bad decisions, you are suffering. Understand this, right choices are important. Now, if you don’t like your life, you can change it. “How,” you ask? By making a decision to change. Everything starts with a decision. Your history is connected to decisions and your future is connected to decisions.
Power words are destinations. God’s words are His destinations. The word destination is firmly tied to the word destiny. Destiny is a place in the future, your future. It is the ultimate end of a determined course, an expected end.
From dawn to decadence,the kingdom of God is not like the kingdoms of this world. The kingdom of God is not a kingdom of Sodomites, witches, looters, gangsters, thieving bankers, compromising church leaders, Hollywood degenerates, New Age teachers, humanists, warmongers, or self-serving, corrupt politicians, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost (Galatians 5:19-21; Romans 14:17).
