WORSHIP SERIES for NOVEMBER:
SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD
During the month of November, our guiding theme in our worship will be taken from Matthew 6:33, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God.” Much of our attention may be drawn during the coming weeks to the presidential election and the political life of our country. (Though it is surely the case that, here in the DC area, our attention is often drawn to political life!) As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are in the position of having “dual citizenship.” We are citizens of the United States, but we are also citizens of the kingdom of heaven (Phil. 3:20). The early church father Augustine of Hippo referred to these as the “City of God” and the “Earthly City.”
- How do these citizenships relate to each other?
- What does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom of God?
- What implications does that citizenship have for our involvement in the ‘earthly city’?
- What kind of freedom does our citizenship in the kingdom of God give us?
This sermon series will give us an opportunity to reflect on this theme in our lives at this moment.
