Jesus: A New Kingdom
We finally made it! We are in the New Testament in our journey through His Story, God’s Story. Our start to the New Testament coincides almost exactly with Lent. Throughout this next 6 weeks, until Easter, we will learn about the life and ministry of Jesus; His time on Earth, His teachings and preparation for the all important work of salvation on Easter.
We invite you to do the same and join us in rediscovering the story of Jesus’ Life and ministry that led Him to the Cross and the empty tomb. What this work means for us and How Jesus’ teaching still leads us today! We are calling this focus on Jesus’ life and ministry “Jesus: A New Kingdom”. We will discover how Jesus points the leaders of the church away from their false understanding on the supremacy of the Jews and reminds them of the promise God first made with Abraham. Namely, that “all nations” would be blessed through Israel.
Jesus came to save the Jews but He also came to save all people; to build a “new kingdom” of every tribe, nation and tongue. A Kingdom that would not come and go under the power of man but an eternal kingdom that last forever. This new kingdom would be led by the one true King, Jesus Christ a descendant of David and who reigns on the throne of heaven that never falls.
Each week there are a few readings to help you prepare and to guide your thoughts to God each day. The weekly messages will be reflections and teachings off those weekly readings. IN addition, Community Group study materials have been custom made by the pastors to help guide your community group and/or family study time together. This all makes for a simple yet powerful focus on how God is working in the world through His Story of old and His New Kingdom of ALL believers still today!
Many new Community Groups will be forming throughout this season. Look on the Church website www.hiscross.org or on the “HisCross” app in your mobile app store and register for a community group today! A simple yet intentional focus on God’s word builds up His Kingdom today will prove beneficial for all eternity.
“After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.” Revelation 7:9.
