We have really enjoyed the beginnings of this King and Kingdom search through the book of Matthew. Thanks for joining us! We have covered about half of our book Kingdom: Finding Your True Self. Here is what you will find as you continue to learn about this indispensable concept from the God Story.
Fear and Faith
Jesus and His Enemies
The Four mentions of the word church in the Gospels (over 100 re: Kingdom)
The Stories of the Kingdom (built upon the parables we have already considered!)
The End of Days (Matthew 24)
The King is Crowned
The Return of the King
Here is a list of the Kingdom teachings in Matthew:
The Sower, The Wheat & the Weeds, The Mustard Seed, The Leaven, The Hidden Treasure
The Net, The Lost Sheep, The Little Ones, The King & His Servants, The Landowner
The Wedding Feast, The Ten Virgins, The Talents, The Fig Tree
As you can see, we are off to a good start!
We have also written a book called Curious Journey: Your Story Matters. There are podcasts and posts which pursue this line of heart inquiry as well. When we see our significance in the Kingdom, Jesus’ keys unlock so many things within our Kingdom hearts. We were created to be sons and daughters of the King. This book also considers what it means to experience Kingdom friendship and companionship – one of the most valuable gifts of life.
Here is the heart of it.
“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. ‘For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’” – Matthew 25:34-36
Peace upon your heart and home friend.
