The Gospel of Matthew: The Kingdom Ethic
We all long for a better world. We want all that is broken around us to be fixed and restored. But what if this brokenness in our world, and even in our hearts, is merely a symptom of something deeper? This longing can only be satisfied when we are restored back to God. Jesus came to the earth to bring this restoration, to usher in a new kingdom. In his teaching and miracles he pointed towards this new way, and in his death he made it possible for us to be made citizens of it. In the kingdom of God we find the life and satisfaction we all long for, and it's ours because of Jesus.
