The Kingdom of God is within You: Family Reflection Video

The Kingdom of God is within You: Family Reflection Video

Why pray?  |  Strengthening family unity

It is closer than you think!

Jesus’s teachings are centered around the Kingdom, but in today’s world, the Kingdom can seem so far away. However, it is easy to bring it closer: we simply need to invite Jesus into our hearts and lives!

The Kingdom of God is within us when Jesus rules in all we do. If we take time to audit right now, how much time we spend with God, with family, gadgets, friends, activities, our priorities are always moving, but there is always room for the Lord within us.

What distracts us from keeping Jesus close? Do we hold a special place in our hearts for faith?

Lord, we pray that God’s Kingdom may win in our hearts so we may be channels for bringing it to others.
