The kingdom is advancing

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released,
that the blind will see,
that the oppressed will be set free,
and that the time of the Lord’s favor has come. Luke 4:18-19

Preaching Christ by loving and helping others through Spirit-led lifestyles, relationships, words, and deeds echoes His mission statement for His advancing kingdom. We reflect the hope and joy His present and future kingdom offers when we carry out His commission (rather than conjecture on the date of His return.) Jesus is a present and available King right now.

Lord, help me to focus on Your priorities and Your mission.
