Luke 12:32 NASB
Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.

You are safe under the wings of His government. The divine paradox is that you are also inexplicably free.

To enter the kingdom is costly: it is the loss of rights and the relinquishment of power. And as our passage in Luke 14 states, the “giving up of all possessions.” So the kingdom would seem to be only about loss and diminishment.

But the loss of rights is the birth of freedom from the tyranny of self and its lust to BE and DO. We enter the kingdom of liberty. The tyranny is NOT the kingdom. The tyranny is Satan and self. To be subject to the King is to leave and transcend both!
