We are called to bear with one another in love
Only one Kingdom will last forever
Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
The Kingdom of God is His prevailing rule throughout history resulting in our right relationships
God’s will is about a Person
For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son
We have three main relationships: the One relationship, one another relationships, & other relationships
with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,
