In Luke 17:20 – 21 Jesus told those who inquired when the Kingdom of God was going to come that it was already in their midst. In a previous post we saw that Jesus brought the Kingdom by modeling it. How else did He bring it into the midst of His generation?
Look at the people in the picture below. Something has really captured their attention and they are closely observing it. Jesus said the Kingdom of God would not come with signs to be observed (Luke 17:20 – 21). According to Him, the Kingdom was already in the midst of those inquiring about it. How could they have missed it?
As we have watched the Kingdom come in the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ, one might be tempted to ask, “So what? What does that have to do with us today?” I am so glad you asked! You had better buckle your seat-belts for the answer!
