The message that Jesus taught was kingdom centered. The word of God can and will change us but we have to allow it.

 

Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. (Romans 10:13)

 

Jesus invited us to follow Him. (Luke 9:23)

 

Jesus invited us to receive Him. (John 6:53-56)

 

Jesus Lordship (Luke 6:46-49)

If we build our foundation upon Jesus and when trouble, bad news, turbulent times comes, we are going to focus on God’s word; we are going to focus on what God’s word says about us.

 

Jesus Kingship (Luke 23:1-3, Acts 17:7)

When we are preaching on what Jesus has done, we are staying kingdom focus.
