    Citizenship in the Kingdom of God
    We need to operate as citizens in the Kingdom of God. There are two areas that our citizenship will affect: 1) Our relationship and interaction with God  2) Our interaction with those around us.  When we're living according to the Kingdom of God, there's a submission to living according to His Word.

    Understanding the Kingdom of God
    The vision of Christian Ministries Church for 2022 is "Seek First the Kingdom of God". To fully grasp the vision, we must gain an understanding of the Kingdom of God. John 18:36 tells us,  "My Kingdom is not of this world". The Kingdom of God is not a physical kingdom. It is a spiritual Kingdom within God's people. God's Kingdom is not achieved  by overthrowing a physical government. It's overcoming the carnal nature of man. Kingdom rule is very different than the current government that we as Americans are accustomed to. Kingdom rule does not involve citizens voting. Kingdom rule involves being under a King and submitting to the King's rule. As part of the Kingdom of God, we place ourselves under the rule of Jesus our King! His kingdom has no end. We submit to his authority. 2022 will be a year where we possess the blessings of God, as we submit ourselves to the rule of the Kingdom of God in our lives.

    Vision Sunday 2022
    The vision for 2022 for Christian Ministries Church is "Seek First the Kingdom of God".  The kingdom was a priority of Jesus. The kingdom was a priority of his followers. The Bible tells us how God's kingdom should operate. We are born into our citizenship in God's kingdom by supernatural birth. When we live by the King's rule, we will live in peace. The kingdom of God should permeate our life. We need to seek first the kingdom of God in every area.

    The Resolve of Wisdom
    As the new year is coming into full view, it's hard not to think about resolutions. However, like we've all experienced, resolutions are rarely successful, and because of that we can find ourselves shying away from making any.. However, God's wisdom moves us to change. God's wisdom in our lives, convicting us to change is evidence that He is not done with us yet, therefore we must not give up. The body of Christ needs us to be effective with the resolutions of change that God has put on our heart.

    Essential 2021
    It is important to see ourselves as essential. Culture will try to dictate what is essential and what is non-essential, but God's Word needs to be our guide. The Word tells us that we were created by God. We have been given gifts by God to build his kingdom. Church is also essential. We must view our role in God's kingdom as essential and be guided by prayer and obedience to Christ,.

    The Reason We Celebrate
    Jesus is the reason that we celebrate, and we need to remember this at Christmas and all throughout the year. Every human is born with a void that needs to be filled. Only God can fill this void. Our problem is the absence of God, and our answer is the presence of God. Jesus came as the perfect, spotless sacrifice, dealing with our sin once and for all. The only way we have access to a holy God is because of Jesus. Our reason to celebrate is Jesus!

    How to Walk in the Spirit
    In her message, "How to Walk in the Spirit", Melanie encourages us to identify the areas of flesh in our lives, and then address those areas. To walk in the Spirit, we must move in forward progress, live a life of  thankfulness and fix our eyes on the Lord.
