I can't believe I forgot to post on Sunday! But, at least I haven't forgotten to read! I am current on the reading plan. How about you?
I am reviewing my extremely short notes that I make after each chapter and I noticed how much talk there is of the “kingdom of God” (Luke 8:10, 9:6, 11:20, 12:31,13:20 & 28,14:50, 17:21)
Jesus saying, “the kingdom of God has come upon you” (11:20), and “the kingdom of God is within you” (17:21), both really stood out to me.
The kingdom if God is a NOW thing! I just keep pondering that! I guess I just had it in my brain that i'ts just a future thing....so I am experiencing a paradigm shift! As Christians, we are in the Kingdom of Jesus now!! Our baptism symbolizes that we leave Satan's kingdom and enter Jesus's kingdom. I love that!!
I have even spotted more "kingdom of God" sentences in this weeks reading (19:11& 21:31). Have you seen any I didn't mention?
I love this fast paced reading just for reasons like this, seeing continuity of thought that I would miss if I was reading the same section over a longer period of time.
I hope you are enjoying it too!!
