Mark 12:34

“You are not far from the kingdom of God.”

+++

Jesus had just explained to a man questioning him that the greatest commandment was to love God with all your soul, mind and strength and to love your neighbor as yourself.

When Jesus saw that the man believed this in his heart…he told him that he was “not far from the kingdom of God.”

Clearly, Jesus didn’t mean the man was not far from dying and going to heaven.

Jesus often talked about the “kingdom of God” as if it were in the here and now.

It’s a state of consciousness to live from.

God’s kingdom breaks into the present when you are loving God and loving your neighbor as though your neighbor was your very self.

If you want to be “not far from the kingdom of God”…you now know how.
