Restoration Series: The Kingdom of God | March 19, 2023

Posted on

As we head into worship this morning, let’s reflect on what we have learned about the Kingdom of God this week.

The Kingdom of God is …

  • Everlasting (Daniel 4:3, Psalm 145:13)
  • Ruled by the Lord and rules over all other kingdoms (1 Ch. 29:11)
  • Glorified by His creation (Psalm 145:11)
  • At hand, near (Matthew 3:2)
  • In the midst of you (Luke 17:21)
  • Not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Romans 13:14-17)
  • Not of this world (John 18:36)
  • Unshakeable (Hebrews 12:28)

 It will …

  • Never be destroyed, or left to another people (Daniel 2:44-45)
  • Break in pieces all other kingdoms and bring them to an end (Daniel 2:44-45)
  • Stand forever (Daniel 2:44-45)
  • Have no end (Luke 1:32-33)

Who will inherit the kingdom?

  • Children, or those having childlike humility (Matthew 18:1-4)
  • The poor (poverty of spirit) in the world (James 2:5 & Matthew 3:5)
  • Those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake (Matthew 3:10)
  • Those born again of water and spirit (John 3:3-5)
  • The tax collectors and the prostitutes, those who believe Jesus is the Son of God (Matthew 21:31-32)
  • Those who actively love God and love their neighbor (Mark 12:28-34) 

This is not an exhaustive list; there is so much more to learn about the Kingdom of God! I can’t wait for what Pastor Aaron has for us this morning.
