In the Lord’s Prayer Jesus asks us to pray that God’s Kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Kingdom Come explores what happens— or what should happen—when the Kingdom of God truly comes in us, in the church, in our local community, and in the world.
As followers of Jesus—people of the Kingdom—we should stand out among the crowd of humanity around us. We should be radically different—in a positive way—attracting people to the Kingdom by living lives that epitomize Jesus. We should be known for our self-sacrifice, love, generosity, loose attachment to things of this world, humility, gentleness, grace, and courageous stand for justice and truth.
In Kingdom Come David Wraight identifies what should be evident when God's Kingdom intersects with the world, addresses the challenges and opportunities associated with Kingdom living, deals with the confusion and misinformation surrounding biblical truth and the identity of Jesus, and suggests practical responses that can be employed by individuals and the Church in advancing the Kingdom and doing God's will.
Through compelling stories and biblical investigation Wraight takes us on a journey from complacency and religiosity to radical world-changing Kingdom living. As you read and are inspired by this book, may God’s Kingdom come and His will be done in your life and in the world around you.
