Day 303

Today’s Reading – Luke 18


Pharisees asked Jesus when God’s kingdom was coming. He replied, “God’s kingdom isn’t coming with signs that are easily noticed. Nor will people say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There it is!’ Don’t you see? God’s kingdom is already among you.”   Luke 17:20-21 CEB

Ever been to Disneyland?

It really is hard to have a bad day there. Everyone seems so nice and helpful and everything is clean and in its place. When you leave, you long for things to be like that.

I think that too often we get caught up in what the Kingdom of God will be like in the future. We impatiently wait for everything to be made right.

And yet, Jesus says the Kingdom of is already here. We just miss it.

You don’t have to wait until Heaven to do the right thing . . . as a matter of fact, I don’t think you can.

What are you waiting for?

The Kingdom of God is here and you are a part of it. Get to it . . .

I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
