Jesus’ teaching was so centred around the Kingdom of God that it’s incredible that we can go through long stretches of faith and not grapple with this major concept. The Kingdom of God isn’t just geographic but is a timeframe, something that’s so close we can touch it in our daily life.
Message by Tom Fenske – January 29, 2017
A STORY TOLD BY A MILLION BREATHS
We are all called to tell the story of the Kingdom Come to those around us.
Luke 24:44-49 Then he said, “When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and in the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures. And he said, “Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah would suffer and die and rise from the dead on the third day. It was also written that this message would be proclaimed in the authority of his name to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: ‘There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.’ You are witnesses of all these things. And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father has promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.”
1. What is your biggest fear in starting a conversation about Jesus with someone?
2. What if you saw your life as a story being told by God rather than just a series of events?
3. What does the story of Jesus mean to you? Where have you witnessed the Gospel impacting your own life?
4. Where is your understanding of the Gospel not big enough? How have you limited God by assuming you know how he works?
5. What if the Holy Spirit will do what Jesus said it would? How do you doubt the Spirit’s work in your life?
