Matt 14-15: Examples of Life in the Kingdom Print E-mail

What does life in the Kingdom look like?  If we are living in the already, not yet reign of God, then what are we to expect?  In the parables of the Kingdom that we looked at last week, we learned, specifically from the parable of the weeds and the net, that for a time in the Kingdom evil will exist along side the children of the King.  We have also seen that Jesus brought healing and power to work miracles to his ministry on earth.  Likewise, the call to respond to the King with faith in all that he has done has been another theme throughout the book of Matthew.  It is these lessons that we see exemplified in Matthew 14-15.

Matt 13: Parables of the Kingdom Print E-mail

I would venture to guess that many of you could tell me some of the parables of Jesus if I asked.  If fact, for many of us, they are some of our favorite parts of Jesus’ teaching and all of the New Testament.  I think of the Prodigal Son or the lost sheep and how often I have reflected on these parables of Jesus.  Indeed, we are people who seemingly enjoy the parables of our Lord.

Matt 11-12: The Identity of the King Print E-mail

There is a group of scholars who meet on a regular basis with the intent of answering the question, ‘Who is the historical Jesus?’  They contend that the gospel writers, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, were not as concerned with historical facts about Jesus as they were with other agendas, such as growing or encouraging their young Christian communities or even silencing early critics of their faith.

Matt 8-10: The Authority of the King and the Mission of the Kingdom Print E-mail

One of the important questions we can ask when considering the life and ministries of the Church is, ‘Who ultimately has authority?’  As even the kids at VBS learned this past week, the right answer to most questions that the pastor asks is, ‘God,’ and ultimately this is obviously the case here.

Matt 5-7: The Sermon on the Mount Print E-mail

I was reading this week in the latest Readers’ Digest an article on what we can expect in the near future.  In celebrating their 1000th issue, they wanted to do a feature on certain trends that will impact our lives over the next five to ten years.  The article began with these words, in bold, large print: “It’s all about you.”  In the different sections of the feature, ranging from medical trends to media trends, the focus seemed to revolve around the simple mantra, “It’s all about you.”  Whether it is ipods and the internet or new jobs and healthy eating, the ‘new’ trends all revolve around the man-centered ideal.

Matt 3-4: The Coming Kingdom and the Call to Obedience Print E-mail

We are a people who marvel at the idea of a Kingdom.  We like stories that involve the story of a conquering King who battles to set his people free.  Whether it be in movies or books or television shows, we seem to always enjoy stories about Kings and Kingdoms.
