Imagining the Kingdom
What does it mean to pursue the kingdom? What does the kingdom look like? The kingdom of God is the “way things should be.” So what does the Kingdom look like? It doesn’t look like the sad or bad stories we hear from the news, from our neighbors, from our local community, city, world.
The greatest piece of the gospel story is that God made a way so that the kingdom of God could be restored in this life as well as the next. One aspect of being followers of God is that we have the opportunity to experience the kingdom now and work towards the kingdom of God being made present on earth now. But sometimes it takes some imagination, breaking out of our comfort, and breaking through barriers.
