The Gospel, Christianity’s central teaching, is not just about what happens to us after we die. So in this sermon, Peter examines how the gospel should impact the day-to-day life of believers. What does it mean to receive the Kingdom of God? What is the significance of the cross? Why is the coming of God’s kingdom really good news?

Questions to Consider

  1. Do I understand the gospel as primarily about life after death, or does it have to do with how I live my life here and now?
  2. What does it look like for me to submit my will to the will of God, to enter the Kingdom of God?
  3. Which of outward-focused responses outlined at the end of the sermon do I find easiest? Which do I find most challenging?
