We’ve just published our latest book, Kingdom: God’s Reign in our Midst, the second study guide in Course 2 of The Joy of Christian Discipleship Series. As we’ve noted, the material in Course 2 is presented in a somewhat denser writing style and overlaps and goes beyond that found in Course 1. As such, the course can stand alone and be studied either before or after Course 1 by relatively new believers, long-standing believers, or even members of churches who might not consider themselves to be “evangelical” in their focus or traditional affiliations.
Kingdom addresses four questions: How do the earthly “kingdoms” we interact with compare with God’s heavenly Kingdom? What is the “good news of the Kingdom of God” that Jesus proclaimed and demonstrated in power throughout His earthly ministry? What is the Millennial Kingdom? And what is our place in God’s unfolding plan? If you haven’t already, this is the time to get a group together, order the study guides you need, and let us know how you grow together! We recommend that study guides in each course be followed in sequence, so we would advise starting your study of Course 2 with the first guide, Awakening, and then moving to Kingdom.
Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life… but seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:25-33
PS: The Zoom format has proven to be an excellent venue for Celebrate Salvation groups. If you’re interested, have any questions, or would like some support in getting a group going in your neighborhood or church, please feel free to contact me!
