Kingdom - Part 5

January 30, 2021 | Diane Rutledge

Kingdoms are defined by the character of their king. When Jesus announced that He was the King of Israel, his disciples were eager to receive their next step instructions. To their surprise, their first order was to go, take up their cross, ... and die. Not quite the call-to-action they anticipated.

Or was it?

Join us for week 5 of our series "Kingdom - Unlike Any Other" as Pastor Diane Rutledge teaches how we (like the disciples) need to die to our theories and ideas of who Jesus was and is.

Series Information

When Jesus came, He brought heaven to earth. He called this “His kingdom,” a kingdom unlike any other kingdom in the world. 

In this series, we will study the implications of what Christ said and did regarding His Kingdom… His message, His methods, and His expectations of anyone who claims to follow Him. By spending time leaning in, seeking to understand and recognizing the ramifications of what Jesus brought to earth for right now and for the future, we might find ourselves standing in silence wondering about our proximity to the Kingdom of God… or better yet… the manifestation of this Kingdom in us and through us.
