Explore the kingdom through the parables of Jesus and learn what the kingdom is, who the kingdom belongs to, and how one lives in the kingdom. Discover that the kingdom is what God does, and that He just might use you in his work. This kingdom is to be characterized by sharing, by working together, by forgiving each other, and by being empowered by the Holy Spirit. Most importantly, it is a kingdom centered on Jesus the Messiah and on worship—and this is just a foretaste of what’s going to happen when the kingdom comes in its fullness.
