Arriving, Pt. 12: - Matthew Ayers
Sunday Aug 4, 2013 - 10:00 AM

The origins of the "Kingdom of God" concepts so important to Jesus are rooted in the prophetic ministry of Old Testament prophets, especially Isaiah. In these prophetic passages, Pastor Matthew Ayers (Director of the Dream Centers of Colorado Springs) helps us discover that the ideas of salvation, righteousness/justice, peace, joy, God's presence, healing, and return from exile aren't simply New Testament concepts, but traditional Jewish ideas that are fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom that he ushers in. These marks of the Kingdom of God are also the very ideas that help us receive God's grace to confront worry and live in freedom.
