09-01-19, Faith into Action, Week 4 of 4, Paradox of Kingdom Coming

September 1, 2019

Kingdom is coming! We try to remember that, hope for it, believe it. Kingdom is coming because of Jesus' faith, not ours, Jesus' faithfulness, not ours. Kingdom is coming for all God's people. There's nothing we could believe or do to make it come. There's nothing we could believe or do to stop it coming. Then, can we just sit back, relax, and wait? The paradox of faith is that we believe Kingdom is already coming, AND we also respond in faith to help Kingdom come closer and sooner.
