My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Luke 17

Thy Kingdom Come

Sin will be caused, but just don't be the causer. Always forgive. You only need a little amount of faith for God to use you. We are but servants in God's eyes.

Jesus healed ten lepers, but only the foreigner was thankful. He got healed permanently.

The Kingdom of God is inside us all. No-one will expect when Jesus is coming back. People will just be taken.

Key verse:
21. nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you.

My thoughts:
Some of this chapter has been interestingly used to develop the theology of the rapture.

The concept of the Kingdom within is a continuation of Jesus changing people's expectations of a earthly rule of current powers to a Spiritual dominion. The Kingdom breaks into the world through people spiritually. It won't be anything taking over politically.
