Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 316

  1. “My kingdom is not of this world…” (John 18:36).

As with any political season, it’s difficult not to fixate on the seemingly critical ebb and flow of each day’s events. Who will emerge? Who will lead? Will anyone lead us back to greatness or at least back from the moral edge? But in spite of the bombardment of such foci, the Christian understands that there’s a much larger picture. Yes, the current moment matters, but how much attention and focus should it steal from the greater, eternal kingdom. Too many Christians see Jesus’ kingdom as a “someday…boy, I hope I make it there” kind of place. They don’t see it as a living reality, perhaps much like Jesus’ own disciples. For many, the “already, not yet” reality of Christ’s kingdom seems to be mostly not yet. And yet, that kingdom remains within reach of all who might reach for it. So which kingdom gets our greater attention today?
