Just where is the kingdom of God?
Now having been questioned by the Pharisees as to when the kingdom of God was coming, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed; nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or, ‘There it is!’ For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst.” Luke 17:20-21 NASB95
The kingdom of God is not an earthly kingdom, but a spiritual one. It is present wherever Jesus is obeyed. We can live in the kingdom of God by following Jesus and doing what he says. When we forgive someone, when we love someone, or when we serve others so that they might know Jesus or know him better, we are helping others see the kingdom of God. We are living in that kingdom.
Our job is to challenge life for ourselves and confront it with life for God, life obeying God. Today, let’s live in such a way that we can glorify God because we obey him and we do what he says. Let’s remember our job is to simply help others move one notch closer to Jesus. And then what we do because we follow Jesus matters forever.
