This four-week series explores the church’s relationship with politics. It begins by distinguishing between Jesus’s kingdom and the kingdoms of this world. While we should not be politically disengaged, we should also avoid centering our lives on the pursuit of power and influence. Jesus’s words help guide our political participation by kingdom ideals instead of party platforms, since God’s kingdom supersedes every political party. The Bible guides us in how to live out our faith in the public square, even with people we disagree with politically—including our government leaders and other brothers and sisters in Christ.
