Where is the Kingdom?

Matthew 4:7

The Kingdom of God: Living for the King

“Where is the Kingdom?”

Matthew 4:17

 

Where is the Kingdom?

 

(1) It is Here and Now

v17b, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”(see also Matthew 3:2)

 

Genesis 1:26, “Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”

 

(2) It is in Christ

v17b, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”

 

(3) It is in Community

See Matthew 4:18f.

 

Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.”

 

Hebrews 10:25, “Let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”

 

Final thought:

Jesus was inviting people into the Kingdom.

  • The Kingdom is here and now
  • The Kingdom is in Christ
  • The Kingdom is in Community

Series Information

“Kingdom” is a foreign concept in contemporary society.  Much is lost in translation between the teachings of Christ concerning the Kingdom of God and the reality of living a Kingdom-centered life. Many believers do not realize that at the moment they are saved, not only are they forgiven of all their sins, but also they become part of something larger than themselves.  They are now citizens of the Kingdom of God.  This Kingdom is full of purpose, community, and Christ-centered living. The Kingdom of God is one of the main themes in the teachings of Jesus.  When the Kingdom of God is taught clearly, the believer will have a greater sense of Godly purpose, connection with the Church, and eternal hope.  The Kingdom of God is happening now and gives us hope for the future.
