上帝的国 [Kingdom of God]

书卷:路加福音(新约)
作者:路加

路加福音17章20节:“法利赛人问:上帝的国几时来到?耶稣回答说:上帝的国来到,不是眼所能见的。”
路加福音17章21节:“人也不得说,‘看哪,在这里’,‘看哪,在那里’‘因为上帝的国就在你们心里。”

今日默想:上帝执行权柄于诸天,是通行无阻的,但在我们身上,却需要我们意志的投降。上帝的国不可以数字估量成功──教会不在乎人数多少;也不可以外表的情况来测定──因为最深的工作未必是最显著的,很多工作在表面上看不清楚,但日久必有巨效。上帝既是无所不在的上帝,祂的国也是无所不在的国。那里有人尊主为大,让祂作王,那里就是上帝的国。上帝的国不是外在的,乃是内在的;不是物质的,乃是属灵的。上帝若我们信徒中间有了宝座,有掌权、有统治,大家同心合意,就是上帝的国在我们中间

Book: Luke (New Testament)
Author: Luke

Luke 17:20 :“Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, ‘The kingdom of God does not come with observation;”
Luke 17:21 :“nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.'”

Today’s Meditation: There is no obstacle in the way of God to rule this world. However, He needs us to surrender to Him by our will. The kingdom of God cannot be measured quantitatively, for it does not matter of the amount of people in church. The kingdom of God cannot be measured on the surface, for the deepest work may not be the most revealing one. We cannot see some works on the surface, but the effect will come after certain time. God is omnipresent. His kingdom is omnipresent as well. The kingdom of God will exist as long as there is one person who magnifies the Lord and let Him be the King. The kingdom of God is interior and is spiritual. The kingdom of God will come as long as He has His throne, authority and ruling among us with our agreement on same will.
