Discussion Questions

1.What stood out to you in the service today?

2.Have you ever thought about the difference between the Kingdom of God (or heaven) and the Church? How has today’s message changed or confirmed your thinking?

3.How does the church manifest or show the kingdom or reign of God on earth? Consider the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13 to help answer this question.

4.How does the Lord want you to apply what you learned today? Who does the Lord want you to minister to today? This week?
