In Your Midst

The Kingdom of God is in your midst

Luke 17 Verse 21: “Nor will people say, ‘Here it is’, or ‘there it is’, because the Kingdom of God is in your midst.”

Jesus tells the Pharisees, rather than a hidden secret that needs to be unveiled, God’s Kingdom is there with the Pharisees, ready for them to enter as active participants.

God’s hearts desire is for His people to live in His Kingdom, where He reigns, and where love, joy, justice, peace and goodness are the laws od the kingdom. Jesus is trying to clarify that His Kingdom is not just coming at some point in the future, like the Pharisees were thinking. It is already here, in the present, in their everyday lives. God’s Kingdom is where justice is done, where love is lived out, that people have a glimpse now of heaven.

The Kingdom of God is open to any one, who accepts Gods’ offer to join, it is not exclusive it is open to any ‘Whosoever’ who accepts.

John 3 Verse 16: “For God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son, that whoever {any whosoever} believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life”. {Life in His kingdom, now and in the eternal realm}

Everyone {any whosoever} to join in His Kingdom and become actively involved in spreading the kingdom.

Then one day, Our Lord and Our Friend will usher in the kingdom completely.

We are in the kingdom of God now, let our actions be the actions of Kingdom people.

God Bless
