We consider the church from the perspective of the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God has many dimensions in scripture, just like the church – the eternal heavenly kingdom, the kingdom in our hearts, and particularly the church kingdom. Jesus set up the church kingdom during his ministry, and now we called to “press into” this kingdom. We must forsake the entanglements of this world to diligently seek first the kingdom of God and sell all that we have to possess the treasure of the kingdom.
