Begin with the church and the kingdom may or may not be recognized. Begin with Jesus and the church becomes an instrument to participate in the kingdom of God by pointing people to reminders that God reigns.
The purpose of the church is to give the world a glimpse of the kingdom, to point the world in the direction of the kingdom.
In Episode 073 of LeaderCast, we offer a few reminders about the kingdom of God. Then, we look to the kingdom of God in the New Testament.
Our focus for this episode is this: Is there a difference between the kingdom of God and institutions we call denominations? What does that mean for our leadership?
