Preaching the Kingdom

Once when Jesus sent out the apostles, He told them to preach, “And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand'” (Matthew 10:7).
Jesus preached the same thing at the beginning of His ministry (Matthew 4:17).
Now, we can say the kingdom is here. The kingdom is the church. We would do well to see the church as the kingdom of heaven, because I believe it will lift our opinion of the church.
Tell others that in the church, we have a small taste of heaven.
