The Kingdom of God

John 18:36  (ID: 1950)

Focusing on God’s kingdom presents Christians with a dilemma: How are we to live faithfully here on earth, where we’re surrounded by all the concerns and ambitions of man? In this lesson, Alistair Begg teaches that God’s people must not be isolated from or absorbed into the world’s issues. Instead, the church should fulfill its spiritual mission, focusing not on cultural or political matters, but on Christ’s saving power above all.


36Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”
