Don’t quarrel on the way!” [Genesis 45:24]

The principles of Kingdom living reveal the reconciling power of God, not a one time, been there done that kind of lifestyle.  Life in the Kingdom is a continual process based on the God’s desire; could you all just ‘get along’.   ”Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”  [Ephesians 4:3]

Joseph had just reconciled with his brothers after years of separation; many years of working through the issues and wounds inflicted by his brothers, many moments of saying yes Lord, when the flesh would rather run the other way!

Total forgiveness had reached the core of his being and became the bridge to save his family and nation.  Having reconciled Joseph didn’t cling to his brothers, but rather released them with great supply and promised blessing.  If they chose to return to live in Canaan it would prove their acceptance of forgiveness.

In this story of a dysfunctional family we can see the three-fold blessing of Kingdom living.   1) Reconciled through peace with Jesus.   2) Released for freedom in Jesus.  3) Reward with great blessing for those who will return and live with Him.

You have the same choice to return again and again for continual blessing and in the process remember…along the way…don’t quarrel.   Eugene Peterson translates it this way.  ”You were all called to travel on he same road and in the same direction, so stay together, both outwardly and inwardly. You have one Master, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all…” [Ephesians 4:3-4 The Message]
