To be involved in the Kingdom of God, we must do Kingdom work.
To be effective in the Kingdom, we need the proper view of these two things:
- COMPASSION - God is all about the heart (Matthew 9:36)
- The COMMISSION - God brings purpose in life (Matthew 28:18-20)
- What can we expect?
Three things that will show up while being at work in the Kingdom:

Take home: We will have tension, when we trust God He will bring a turning and then a transformation.
