Daily Word Of God

Luke 17:20-25

Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was to come, Jesus gave them this answer, ‘The coming of the kingdom of God does not admit of observation and there will be no one to say, “Look here! Look there!” For you must know, the kingdom of God is among you.’

He said to the disciples, ‘A time will come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man and will not see it. They will say to you, “Look there!” or, “Look here!” Make no move; do not set off in pursuit; for as the lightning flashing from one part of heaven lights up the other, so will be the Son of Man when his day comes. But first he must suffer grievously and be rejected by this generation.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • The Kingdom of Heaven is already present in the here and now. We are each called to “make” the Kingdom of God more fully present to others through our witnessing of the Gospel values.


  • However, we seem to be clouded and blinded by the secular values of the world and thus tend to neglect the Gospel values of God’s Kingdom.


  • Pray for the graces we need to be more attuned to living more fully and faithfully in God’s ways.  If we are sincere, God will never fail to accompany us on our faith’s journey.
