The Gospel of the Kingdom
Matthew 4:23-25 |
"What is in it for me?" This is a constant question that is asked throughout American society. "What is in it for me?"
Unfortunately, we have interally AMERICANIZED the Gospel to draw attention to ourselves. "I believed!" "I followed the Lord in baptism!" "I...I...I!!!"
The Gospel of the Kingdom is about "COMMUNITY."
"They brought to Him all who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and he healed them."
The Gospel of the Kingdom is "WELCOMING" those UNWELCOMED!
"The poor have the gospel preaching to them."
The Samaritans of Sychar

The Gospel of the Kingdom gives all glory to God!
"God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of Jesus!"
"Unto Him be glory in the church!"
