From the Everyday Kingdom to the Eternal Kingdom :: Transitions

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 7/14/2019 by Pastor Steve Shields

We live in an everyday world, but as Christians, we are part of an eternal kingdom. The Eternal Kingdom should be where we set our hearts and minds. It’s from the Eternal Kingdom that we draw our basis for living.

But the Everyday Kingdom tends to push it out until we find ourselves not just living here IN this everyday world, but we live as though we are OF this everyday world. The Everyday Kingdom becomes our identity.

In this podcast, Pastor Steve works to help us transition from the Everyday Kingdom to reflecting the Eternal Kingdom.

Look to Heaven | Where to Look

The Far Side. Who doesn’t love Far Side cartoons? Gary Larson was a master of humor that was just about a half-a-bubble-off.

In one of them, he has a man with angel wings and a halo, wearing a robe, sitting on a cloud, thinking to himself, “I wish I had brought a magazine.” The idea makes me smile — but only because I know it doesn’t represent reality.

If that cartoon represented reality, I couldn’t smile at it.

What, then, is it like to be in heaven? What will we do? What will be there. What will not be there?

This podcast helps us imagine heaven so that we can look forward to being there.

What is WRONG with people?!

I ask myself that question all the time.

The Bible answers the question with clarity. And, if we apply the answer correctly, it can be transformational to our soul.

This podcast talks about looking at ourselves and seeing what is, what should be, and what will be.
