A blogger who goes by the name T just posted this:
“The topic of the kingdom or reign of God was so central, so thematic to Jesus’ own teaching and preaching that it is fair to say that even when he wasn’t talking about it explicitly, he was still talking about it.”
That shook me. And puzzled me. And motivated me …
After more sermons than I could count, after thousand upon thousands of Christian bible classes, I was largely ignorant about the main subject of Jesus’ teaching and preaching. Worse, I was far from alone in this.
That’s completely transformative.
Maybe Jesus was right: pursuing the kingdom of God is the best thing you could do with our lives. But what is it? What was he calling us to?
