About This Message Series
The kingdom of God is often called an “already-not-yet” kingdom. This concept means that the kingdom of God is already here, even as we wait for it to come in a fullness that we do not currently experience. During the season of Lent we will study the kingdom parables found in the Book of Matthew. These kingdom stories will teach us to live in the tension of the “already-not-yet” kingdom of God. Through these stories we are challenged to live joyously and generously as we fully immerse ourselves in the kingdom. These parables will also teach us to live expectantly and alertly as we await our King’s return. In all, these parables will orient our hearts and minds not only towards God’s kingdom but ultimately to the King Himself.
