Fear Not
The Present Reality of God's Kingdom

Leston Blackburn, May 5th

David Gleaves, May 12th

Isaiah 41:10-13 (ESV) – “10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” What comforting words these are – even to us today. Can you think of a time in your life, a situation where these words came to mind and brought great comfort and renewed hope to you? can. Of course, we can read these words often without understanding the original story in which they were first given. These inspiring verses come from the book of Isaiah, the forty-first chapter. It was written at a time of great national upheaval. In fact, verse one speaks of a time of great judgment. But just as God brought hope and healing to what appeared to be an insurmountable situation, so He still does the same in the lives of millions today. Join as us we explore this wonderful reality.
Life in Christ is not merely about being rescued from this place (earth) and taken to a better place (heaven). This is not what life in the Spirit was designed to be. Just as God moved from tent to temple in the Old Testament, so a new reality has been forged through Christ which gives life in the Spirit meaning here and now.

Join David as he explores this fascinating topic, concluding that the Gospel is not a lifeboat to save us, but more like a landing craft to storm the beaches. The kingdom of God is not merely a future promise, but a present reality.
