“Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”” Luke 17:20-21 NIV
Sometimes as a Spiritual Director I get asked about heaven. What would it be like? How different would it be from right here, right now? And a few other questions in that same vein.
While in one sense heaven will definitely be a transition to another level altogether, in another sense heaven can start to be experienced right here, right now. Jesus was very clear when he consistently shared that the kingdom of heaven was ‘already in their midst’.
I believe heaven is the 3D version of a 2D life figure. Is what a pyramid is to a triangle, what a cube is to a square. It will be a glorified state of our current heart condition.
With that in mind let us plant the seed of faith today in order to see the plant of heaven growing into eternity.
