In this session, we explore with David how Christ’s reign is inexhaustible, there is always “so much more” the Father desires to give us in Jesus.
Sometimes our Redeemer King comes upon us when his glory breaks through by outpourings of the Holy Spirit in the renewal of his people – what some call “Christ Awakenings.” During these times, Jesus intensifies and accelerates our experiences of his supremacy.
Our Lord is also passionate for the consummation of all things. One day he will come “upon us” in a spectacular, bodily return, in order to triumph throughout the universe forever. Both now and later, the “increase of his Kingdom” has no end (Isaiah 9).
We wait continually for more of Christ supreme, not only “then” but “now”, as we pray “Come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22).

Video 8:2 – What are ways the Final Consummation will exalt Christ?
"Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." - Philippians 2:9-11
After Completing Your Video:
Pause: Spend a minute in silence, reflecting on today’s teaching. What was the most meaningful part for you? How did it speak to you?
Reflect: In what ways did today's teaching video give you greater reasons to put your hope in Christ alone -- for your life, for your church, for your generation? As well as for eternity?
Apply: What is one insight about the glory of Christ you gained today that you would like to share with one other believer before the day is over, in order to help that person gain a little bit larger vision of the greatness of Christ, too?
Pray: What would you like ask the Father to do in your life by His Spirit that would deepen some facet of your relationship to His glorious Son?
