Citizens of the Kingdom

In Matthew 6, Jesus teaches us to pray a prayer that gets us involved in the business of God, "Your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven." These words had a profound impact on early followers of Jesus. In essence, they truly believed that Jesus provided the power to bring forth deposits from heaven that would be felt on this earth. It is true that a day is on its way when all things will be made right. It is also true that God's way is in this day. His kingdom has come, yet it hasn't been fully established yet. But it is coming.

Praying this prayer that Jesus taught us to pray should force us to consider what it means to citizens of this kingdom. Beginning on April 15th, we're going to be in a 12-week series called Citizens of The Kingdom. Over the next few months we're going to explore what it means to be fully immersed with kingdom-citizenship. We'll examine the identity of the early church. Why were they called things like: believers, new creation, disciples, children, adopted, the way, saints, aliens & strangers, royal priesthood, aroma, jars of clay, friends, and ambassadors. What do these names, labels, and identities mean for us today? Join us as we ask God to peel off the layers that keep us from living as people who have been created in the Image of God.
