21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools,23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Romans 1:21 – 23 ESV
Jesus Christ came into the world making the incredible statement that He was the Light of the world (John 8:12). The primary definition of light is “something that makes vision possible.” By that definition, the coming of Christ enables us to see as we have never seen before. The question is, what does He enable us to see?
Everything changed the day Jesus Christ was born as a babe in Bethlehem. One of the things that changed was our view of God. The God enshrouded in the mystery of history stepped into our world and introduced Himself to us in the Person of His Son. Our view of God would never be the same as a result.
In the first post of this series we defined the Kingdom of God as the sovereign authority and rule of God over all things in Heaven and on earth. It is God actively reigning. The question we are seeking to answer is, “What does it look like when the Kingdom comes?” Fortunately we have a very vivid picture provided for us in the life and ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ.
