The Word This Week
This Sunday we will be reflecting on the second and third requests in the prayer Jesus taught his disciples to pray; "May your kingdom come soon, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." The two requests are closely connected as they express a desire for God's perfect intentions to be made real. That is what is meant by the "kingdom of God" which Paul tells us in Romans 14:17 is a matter of "righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit." Jesus addresses all three in some way in his teaching in Matthew 5:17-48 which we will look at on Sunday. This video addresses the idea of peace and how it expresses this kingdom reality. I pray it whets our appetite for more of God's kingdom as we come together on Sunday. Marcus
