4. Featured: Understanding the Kingdom
When God comes first, all of life is different. Our foundations for
living are rock solid, our relationships are cemented with the love of
God and our destiny is forever intertwined with that of Jesus Christ! ...
The kingdom of heaven is where God reigns. God is in charge. That means
no one else is reigning or in charge. And if we look seriously at how
human beings have done while reigning and being in charge - we may break
into worship about this truth! ...
5. What is the Kingdom Like?
To what would you compare the Kingdom of Heaven? It is like finding the
technology stock you bought in the 1980s for $50 and suddenly realizing
you are a millionaire. It is like the owner of DeBeers finally finding
the perfect diamond and selling a billion dollar empire to have it. It
is like the harassed physician tired of the HMOs, selling home and BMW
and finding bliss in a mission in Congo. It is like the crack addict

Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands. ...
9. Pastoral Prayer
Give us eyes of faith to see beyond the dark horizon of this present
darkness into the light of a new day. Open our spirits more fully to the
joy that lies beyond the trial, in the courts of your eternal love. ...

look younger longer," say Drs. Rick and Arlene Noodleman, the

The psalmist tells us that through all of the turbulence, God is with
us. God is our refuge and strength when problems shake our world. He has
such awesome power that the world actually melts at the sound of his
voice. God is in control and will be exalted. ...
12. World Leaders Should Unite to End Anti-Christian Persecution,
Vladimir Putin Says
Vladimir Putin has urged the world's political leaders to stop the
violent persecutions against Christians that have erupted in many Middle
