The gospel of the kingdom is good news that will change the way you live. Responding to this gospel means far more than saying a salvation prayer, because the kingdom gospel is not a formula to get you into heaven. It is a divine plan to bring heaven to earth. Rather than giving you a glimpse of the afterlife, the gospel of the kingdom is meant to put the very nature of God on display in the here and now for this broken world to see. And for the most part, this doesn’t happen in big meetings inside church buildings or revival tents. The Kingdom of God is revealed in everyday life. We were created to be image-bearers, a people who reflect God’s nature. We were made to display the character of Christ - his love, his mercy, his grace, his compassion for the poor and the outcast - in our words and actions. Christian communities are meant to demonstrate what this world would look like if everyone recognized Jesus as their King. In short, we exist to reveal the Kingdom of God, a Kingdom that is defined by the very nature of King Jesus. The Everyday Kingdom provides a compelling scriptural foundation for the pursuit of God’s Kingdom, as well as practical advice and real-world examples to help individual readers and Christian communities engage in what God is doing in the earth – revealing the Kingdom of God! It challenges the reader to leave behind self-centered, blessing-seeking religion to embrace authentic Christianity, and to move from admiring Jesus to imitating Him.
