The Mustard Seed Kingdom
Jesus often talked about the kingdom of heaven or kingdom of God. What I want to do today is to look at that question of (1) what is the kingdom of heaven that Jesus is talking about? And (2) what is it like? What is at the heart of this kingdom? What is the kingdom of heaven? The kingdom of heaven is the reign of God; it is the place where God’s presence is.
Jesus is not just talking about a place we go to after we die; he is talking about the coming of the kingdom of God to earth. You have to remember that the first thing Jesus preached was this: "Hear the good news, the kingdom of God is here."
