INVERTED KINGDOM [series]
April 30, 2017
The Kingdom of Heaven turns everything upside down. Jesus tells us that the way to gain our life is to lose it. He tells us the last will be first and the first will be last. He says that whoever wishes to be great must become a servant, and that the only people fit for this kingdom are those humble enough to become like little children. These truths are more than contrarian and counterintuitive; they challenge all of our assumptions and reorient us to live as though the way up is down.
"Inverted Kingdom" is a continuation of our study of the Gospel of Matthew, focusing in on chapters 16-20.
