There has been a lot of confusion about how to do mission. Here is my suggestion.
What do we know about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ?
Now that the kingdom is here, how did people respond? Which people responded?
The Messiah brought the Kingdom of God. What does that mean?
Now that the numerous People are settled into the Place with all of their Privileges it’s time for them to begin their Purpose. How will they do?
God has now chosen a kingdom. How will that kingdom get from slavery to autonomy?
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Is God willing to take responsibility for this creation?
The religious elite challenge his power while the Romans challenge his authority. It looked pretty dark there for a few days but Jesus’ followers did their best with the knowledge they had.
[Due to technical difficulties, we lost the first couple minutes of this sermon.]
Jesus cleanses the temple and deposes the religious elite.
The Kingdom is here now but not all the way yet. Jesus illustrates our status with stories while Zacchaeus provides us with a model for repentance.
