Already and Not Yet

Many blessings of the kingdom of God are already ours in Christ. Yet many others will only be fulfilled when He returns in glory. In between His first and second coming, we live in tension between the "already” and the “not yet.” In Luke 17, Jesus teaches us about the coming of His kingdom so that we may have divine assurance that quells our fears, as well as reverent anticipation that guides our lives for His glory.
