The Kingdom, Now But Not Yet #1
This week at NTC Plattsburgh, Pastor Don begins a new series The Kingdom: Now But Not Yet. In this first installment, Don discusses the importance of growing the Kingdom of God because Jesus did not come into the world to build a church - instead, he came to build a Kingdom! And when the Kingdom comes into peoples’ lives, it changes perspectives; it chases away tears and it brings peace, healing, and forgiveness. There are people in the world that don’t know Jesus or what he has done for them so it is our duty as followers of Christ to tell them so that they too can receive the Kingdom of God.
“The righteousness of God’s Kingdom is the product of God’s reign in the human heart. God must reign in our lives now if we are to enter the Kingdom tomorrow.” -- George Eldon Ladd, Gospel of the Kingdom: Scriptural Studies in the Kingdom of God
