Yes–more on the Kingdom

Imonk has just written 12 great observations on seeking the kingdom.  Here’s the first:

You won’t get very far in following Jesus if you don’t have some idea of what “the Kingdom of God” means, because Jesus talks about it constantly, and commands you to seek it.

The rest are also worthy of a wide hearing (and, even more, wide action).

  1. This is a great quote! Many people unfortunately do not know what they mean by “kingdom of God.” Usually this phrase simply means ‘heaven’ when it really has to do with the reigning action of God to bring about shalom for the universe. With that, the ‘already but not yet’ understanding of the kingdom gives us a missional task to reflect the kingdom to our culture as we follow our rabbi Jesus. Thanks for the post!
