Kingdom Christianity per Matthew

Mark | Luke | John | Acts | King | Ethic | Subjects

I know that plenty of other and better writers have examined what it means to be a Kingdom Christian, but I’m writing this as an exercise in self-examination as much as anything else.

  1. Score? No such word in scripture!

    Imagine the exponential blessing if we asked God to enable us to practice one of His precepts each day of February.

  2. Great post. One question……..would chapter 22 verses 37-39 qualify? 🙂

    I love your paraphrased interpretation of the verses you listed, like “open doors rather than shutting them”.

    Keep on bloggin, brother!

I was just searching for phrases directly connected with kingdom living … not intending to be exhaustive.

    Then I’d have just another abbreviated annotated commentary on the Gospel of Matthew!
