The Kingdom of God Within

Dr. Levy H. KnoxBishop's BlogLeave a Comment

When the Pharisees asked Jesus when the Kingdom of God would come, He answered by telling them that it was within them, basically informing them that if they were looking for it anywhere other than inside themselves they were looking in the wrong place.

It is the religious mind that always wants to know the literal: where, when, and how. It is religion that teaches you to blame your problems on some force outside yourself, namely, the ‘devil.’ And it is also religion that teaches you to look for solutions to problems in something outside yourself…when the whole time Jesus is telling you the answer: the Kingdom of God is within. He has been telling us all along that Christ within us is the hope of glory (Col 1:27).

I want to issue a challenge to you to take inventory of yourself and allow the Spirit of God to reveal to you the source of your total supply: the Kingdom of God that is within you. When we find the Kingdom of God within ourselves, we can then look in the mirror and with unveiled face behold the glory of God (2 Cor 3:18).
