Matthew 4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people Genesis 2:8 The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. 9 And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Matthew 7:13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
The Wrong question: What is your Religion?
The Right Question: Are you in the Kingdom of God?
For too long, the church has been focused on preaching the gospel of salvation, emphasizing faith in Jesus Christ and being saved through grace! This is good and true! However, if you look carefully at the preaching of Jesus and Paul, they were focused on the Kingdom of God. They were preaching the gospel of the Kingdom! We are not called to convert people from one religion to another! Christianity is not a religion if we define religion as the process where humankind seek a god! Jesus did not come to start a new religion! Regardless of what people had believed or what religions they were subscribed to, Jesus spoke to them about the Kingdom. In fact, you may so ‘religious’ and adopt all the religions of the world but if you are not in the Kingdom of God, it is a pure waste of time! The real bottom line about life is highlighted through this question: “Which kingdom do you belong to?” You are either in the kingdom of darkness or you are in the Kingdom of God. There is no third kingdom. How can I be in the Kingdom of God? This is the right question to ask and this series of preaching on the Kingdom of God will address this question. Be empowered in the Kingdom as you understand the mysteries of the Kingdom! Amen.
