This Sunday’s Discussion Questions: September 20
Jesus announced the arrival of the Kingdom God. He told us to turn away from whatever we were into, (including our sin), and come under his rule. Enter, embrace and experience his Kingdom now
- What can we learn from the following Bible verses about the Kingdom of God both being something that is present now and yet to come? Mark 1:15; Matthew 8:11; Matthew 13:41, 43; Luke 17:20-21
- How do the concepts of the Kingdom of God as God’s sovereign authority to rule and a realm to enter into complement one another?
- What are we asking for when we pray to Abba Father, “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven”
- We enter and embrace the Kingdom of God like children Jesus said. Children have no authority of their own, Children are willing to yield to the commands of their parents, Children trust the adults in their lives, Children don’t separate the worthy from the unworthy. Which of these have created your greatest struggle to embracing the Kingdom of God?
When we enter the enter the reign of King Jesus we experience the blessing of his reign; right relationships, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. It is also a prayer for the earth – every nation, every tribe and family to become the realm of our God and King.
“‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come,
your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.” – Jesus in Matthew 6:9-13
