Lord's Day 48, Psalm 46, Mark 4:26-29 -- Your Kingdom!

Rev. Richard Bodini - June 26, 2016

The second petition, “Your kingdom come,” is filled hope and longing for what will be. However, it is also rooted very much in what IS! Here and now! What we are connected to and doing in the world and in the church. It is as much for the kingdom that will be ushered in by Jesus with the renewing of this world as it is for our participation in the restoration and transformation of our minds and bodies and church. Yes, we are kingdom coming Holy Spirit guided agents in this world. God does not abandon us to the devices and desires of the devil. He empowers us to work in the local church and to expand the kingdom.
