This coming weekend at Eastbrook Church we began a five-week preaching series entitled “The Kingdom of God.”
The kingdom of God is one of the greatest themes of the Bible. It weaves throughout the entire Bible, tying the Old and New Testaments together around the reality that God is King. Jesus began his ministry in Mark’s Gospel by proclaiming: “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!” (Mark 1:15). But what does the kingdom of God mean for us today where we live and with what we face? Particularly, how do we navigate being “in the world” but not “of the world” (John 17:14-18) when it comes to living the kingdom in our everyday lives and the world around us? With our present cultural moment more polarized than ever, we need to regain our footing in the fullness of God’s kingdom that orients us toward God as King, Jesus as Lord, and the Spirit as present in the church. Join us as we explore the nature of the kingdom of God, including some specific application to faith and the public sphere.
