The Kingdom is among us
Something to think about
'The Kingdom of God is among you'. Many interpretations favour the use of ‘among you’ instead of ‘within you’. St Luke emphasises the communal dimension of the reign of God. Jesus is not only living in each one of us but also among us.
The Pharisees asked Jesus about the time and place where the reign will be established but they were unable to grasp the message: Jesus’ presence is the Reign of God.
When we see the presence of Jesus among us in our community, then there is no need to look at the sky and wait for a spectacular coming. We have a responsibility to shine like stars, demonstrating the significance of complete trust in God, by shaping our lives with His values even when they are contrary to the nature of our contemporary world.
