Kingdom of God Is at Hand

Luke 17:20-21
Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he said in reply, “The coming of the kingdom of God cannot be observed, and no one will announce, ‘Look, here it is,’ or, ‘There it is.’ For behold, the kingdom of God is among you.”

What do you think of when you hear the phrase: “The kingdom of God”? Many jump to thoughts of heaven and eternal life…but this does not seem to be what Jesus is talking about! He says, “The kingdom of God is among you.” Could it be we can begin to “enter the kingdom of God” when we are truly loving God and loving our neighbor as ourselves? We are meant to be a part of building the kingdom of God…in the here and now! This is your mission. Don’t miss it!
