This Sunday we consider the hidden but visible kingdom of God. The appointed lesson is Mark 1:14-20.
“'The kingdom of the world is already becoming the kingdom of our Lord, and he will reign forever and ever.' It is why what we do together on Sundays is so important. Like an embassy in a land ruled by other kings, the church is an outpost of the already in the world of the not yet. And as we live lives following Christ, we are ambassador of his kingdom in this world."
