“Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He replied to them saying, The kingdom of God does not come with signs to be observed or with visible display, Nor will people say, Look! Here it is or See it is there! For behold the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you].” -Luke 17:21, AMP
I thought these words were so beautiful. And an incredible challenge.
God is within us and surrounding us.
That’s so incredibly amazing and comforting.
At the same time, it’s a challenge to us.
If people are looking for the kingdom of God, they should find it in us. How we live our lives.
The kingdom of God is not a physical building or place – it’s not a visible display. It’s with you and among you.
Thank you Lord that this is true. Help us to be a vessel in which you can shine through.
