2017-10-15 The Kingdom Restores Through Open Doors

by

The Kingdom Restores Through Open Doors October 15, 2017 John 10:6-15 I am a believer that life works best when the right doors are opened to us at the right time.. and no door is more important than the one that leads to the Kingdom of God. One verse that highlights this door is Rev […]

2017-10-08 The Kingdom Restores Through Open Hands

by

Series: Kingdom Restoration THE KINGDOM RESTORES THROUGH OPEN HANDS Matthew 18:21-35 Too often we go through life we our fists clenched…out of fear, anger, or greed. Meanwhile, God invites us into his presence with open hands of generosity, peace, and encouragement. True religion is all about others’ needs, not our own wants (James 1:27). But with […]

2017-10-01 The Kingdom Restoration

by

THE KINGDOM RESTORED THROUGH FORGIVENESS Some of you may remember longtime news anchor Howard Beale in the 1975 classic film Network shouting: “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.” In fact, you may be one of thousands upon thousands of people, acutely angry at their lot in life… governmental and societal […]

2017-09-03 The Kingdom Comes to the Powerful

by

The Kingdom Comes to the Powerful This morning I would like to suggest that the kingdom comes to the powerful (1 Cor 4:20), although this is not power in the normal sense of the word. On the one hand, Jesus’ kingdom evidences miracles that only the hard-hearted can dismiss (Matt 11:20- 21; Luke 5:17). But […]

2017-08-27 The Kingdom Comes to the Committed

by

THE KINGDOM COMES TO THE COMMITTED Although Jesus and Paul are sometimes set at odds as if they as if they are theological adversaries, it is clear they agree on this one theme: Only the Committed Are Eligible for the Kingdom. Jesus says “Blessed are the persecuted because of right living, for theirs is the […]

2017-08-13 The Kingdom Comes as an Inheritance

by

The Kingdom Comes as an Inheritance  Galatians 5:19-24; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 “Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done”… such a great prayer because it frees us from ourselves, our petty concerns and into the grand scheme of God. In fact, a strong biblical case could be made from both the teachings of Jesus and the […]

2017-08-06 The Kingdom Comes to the Caring

by

The Kingdom Comes to the Caring Romans 14:17 The Kingdom was Jesus’ favorite topic, from the start of his ministry (Matt 4:12, 17) until the end (Acts 1:3). Yet is seems ironic that the number one evangelist of the early church, the Apostle Paul, so seldom talked about the kingdom himself…instead focusing on justification by […]

2017-07-30 The Kingdom is Coming

by

THE KINGDOM IS COMING One of the main teaching of the New Testament is the soon, imminent return of Jesus (Rev 22:16, 20; 1 Thes 4:13-15). Along with the coming of the king is the coming of the kingdom (Luke 22:17- 18). The disciples hoped they would see the kingdom come (Acts 1:6)…but Jesus never […]

2017-07-23 The Kingdom is Within

by

THE KINGDOM IS WITHIN / AMONG Most of us are familiar with the first verse in the Bible “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen 1:1), but maybe not equally as familiar with the last: “The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.” (Rev 22:21) These two verses […]

2017-07-16 Not Far

by

THE KINGDOM IS NOT FAR Jesus was the Master of Irony. The last shall become first. The meek shall inherit the earth. Blessed are the poor. Blessed are those that mourn. There was a sense in which Jesus was saying if you think you have arrived, that is when you are truly in a dangerous […]
