Just like the Pharisees who rejected Christ, many people today look for a physical kingdom on the Earth, but Jesus told us that it will not be that way,
Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17.20–21).
The Kingdom of God is about the heart and how we live. Therefore, do not look for an earthly palace, nor look for Jesus to sit on a throne on the Earth, for He already sits on the throne, and He reigns from heaven over the hearts of His people.
- How would you describe the kingdom to someone unfamiliar with biblical teachings?
- Are you part of the kingdom now?
