“What is the kingdom of God like, and to what shall I compare it? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and threw into his own garden; and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air nested in its branches” (Luke 13:18-19).
Christ’ birth, crucifixion, death, resurrection, ascension, and the coming of his Spirit means that the kingdom of God isn’t just something to come, but is now a present reality; dwelling in his Church, his people, in you and me. In practical terms it means living with the realization that each day is filled with kingdom possibilities. It is a perspective that must be embraced. Being a Kingdom champion can never be accomplished apart from thinking like one. Dwelling on the failures of yesterday or the uncertainties of tomorrow robs you of the energy required to be a champion of today.
