Life in the Kingdom

from Of First Importance

At its core, life in the kingdom is not so much about pursuing a thing; it is about pursuing a person. It is about having the eyes of my heart focused on Christ. It is about a soul filled with appreciation and brimming with affection. It is walking around astounded that he would place his affection on me and even received my flawed love. It is living with the hope that someday we will no longer be separated; someday I will be united to him and live with him forever.”

– Paul David Tripp,A Quest for More(Greensboro, NC: New Growth Press, 2007), 168.
