Ever wanted an inside glimpse of Discipleship Training School? Our DTS In Short series gives a quick look at what our students learn in class. Each post highlights a major teaching topic of DTS. Here’s what Don Stephens had to say on the Kingdom of God:
“The Pearl of great price has gone missing! Having treasured it for centuries, the modern church has exchanged the Gospel of the Kingdom for a half-gospel of forgiveness and heaven. Few today have eyes to notice the treasure glimmering in the field. And yet, the grand theme of all Jesus’ ministry was the towering promise of the Kingdom. The kingdom is the key to our passions, the ground of our hope, the fuel of our imaginations, and the storehouse of Truth. Nothing is so crucial at this moment in history than the rediscovery of the passion of Christ – the Kingdom of God.”
