“Jesus spoke about The Gospel of the Kingdom more than any ‘other’ aspect of the gospel and so should we.”
“The gospel you’re preaching isn’t Making Disciples because you’re not preaching The Gospel of the Kingdom.”
“The gospel of salvation deals only with the salvation of your soul. The Gospel of the Kingdom deals with all things the cross affected, including not only salvation but also the reconciliation of all things—including the material world that was lost in the fall.”
Everyone is preaching the gospel of salvation which is only mentioned once in the entire bible (Ephesians 1:13), and completely glossing over The Gospel of the Kingdom which is mentioned over 50 times.
Statements like these are said to be confusing or an overcomplification of a simple message. As I think back to my days before Christ and review in my mind the way the gospel was presented to me, I have to admit that I cannot ever recall even hearing the Gospel of the Kingdom.
Have you ever heard The Gospel of the Kingdom?
Do you know what The Gospel of the Kingdom is?
If you answered ‘yes’ to both of those, then help me out please.
Assume I know nothing about Christianity, the character and nature of God, or His plan for humanity and creation. How would you briefly relay the message of The Gospel of the Kingdom to me?
