This Sunday’s Gospel includes three more short parables on the ‘Kingdom of God’. Jesus used the term ’The Kingdom of God, the reign of God’ to describe a whole way of living with God. ‘The Kingdom of God’ is not a place or a territory.
Jesus was concerned about transforming the world, bringing about a change resulting in the way people live— to one of love, peace with respect for everyone and the world around them. In short, living with God.
Fundamental to this is a close relationship with God and a desire to have a deep, personal and loving relationship with the person of Jesus Christ.
This is the dream, the passion of Jesus Christ for us and for the whole world.
