How we crave publicity and attention! Even in churches, ministries and assignments, there is such a strong tendency to be showy. In Matt 6:1-4, Jesus revealed the motivations of those who give to the poor. Challenging His disciples, Jesus assured them that God knows and sees all, and will duly reward. Likewise, we are all invited to join His Majesty’s Secret Service.

Many books have been written about prayer. But what does Jesus, the King, say about the topic of prayer? Through seven points about prayer, this teaching from Matt 6:5-9 will help you review your prayer life and focus as you seek to align with the Father’s heart and mind for the things of the kingdom of God.

When we bring our petitions through prayer, do we truly know who we are talking to and how we are to approach God? From the opening line of the pattern of prayer that Jesus taught in Matt 6:9, Henson shares about the BIGNESS, CLOSENESS and AWESOMENESS of God. This teaching will encourage you to rediscover your relationship with Abba Father as you approach Him with reverent awe!

“Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Matt 6:10 has become a very popular theme verse for seminars and conferences. Sounds good, but what does it really mean? For Christians raised in church sub-culture, many don’t understand kingdom implications. In this teaching, Henson presents the kingdom of God, shares the different views of the millennial kingdom, and challenges all kingdom representatives to be obedient to our kingdom assignments.

Understanding Matt 6:11 “Give us this day our daily bread.” in its kingdom context opens our eyes to see that it is so much more than just about the fulfilling of needs. Join Henson as he unpacks this one verse, word by word, to learn precious lessons about trust, reliance, community, stewardship and generosity. When we align with God’s kingdom and be about our kingdom assignments, the King promises to release provision for the mission.

The sad truth is that so many are trapped in the debt of unforgiveness but are totally unaware of it. Even worse, some say that Matt 6:12 is no longer relevant for believers, hence disregarding this important teaching of Jesus. Henson addresses these and more in this session, showing that God has already provided the better way of forgiveness. Don’t be trapped or held back from kingdom assignments anymore!

When we don’t understand temptations, tests and trials, we may miss what God intends for us and end up being derailed, detoured and distracted from the purposes of the kingdom. Matt 6:13 is more than just a plea to be kept from temptations but one that asks for victory in and through temptations! Learn about the five temptations common to all, and the way not only to escape but also to overcome!

In this 50th teaching session of KINGDOM101, we conclude the Disciples’ Prayer with Matt 6:13b. This closing statement provides focus, perspective and hope. It reminds us that regardless of what is happening in the world, what we achieve in ministry, how well we fare in our kingdom assignments, it is ultimately God’s kingdom, enabled by His power, and He alone deserves all glory! Thine not mine.

In Matt 6:16-18, Jesus used fasting as the third illustration of how one is not to draw attention to himself where such acts of piety are concerned. This teaching examines the place of fasting in the lives of New Testament believers. Don’t miss the connection between the three examples that Jesus used, and the implications for those serious in knowing their kingdom assignments.

When it comes to money, what is the right kingdom perspective? It’s best to listen to what the King has to say. In Matt 6:19-24, Jesus goes straight for the heart of the matter. Henson explores this passage in detail with a clear objective of helping believers understand what treasures in heaven are. To learn this well, make sure you listen right through to the end.

Matt 6:25-34 is a very familiar passage. Yet, Jesus’ teaching about money did not start here, but in the previous section. In this teaching, Henson draws five key points that help kingdom subjects live rightly, and how not to worry. Be reminded that these are premised on choices already made based on Matt 6:19-24.
