Blessed Theophylact on the kingdom of God and our lives.
We often hear about the kingdom of God, but what exactly is it?
Blessed Theophylact answers:
When a man’s disposition and way of life are like that of an angel, most assuredly this is the kingdom of God. For God indeed is said to rule as King when nothing worldly meddles in the governing of our souls and when in every respect we live not of this world. This manner of life we have within us, that is to say, we have it within us when we desire and will it. We do not need to wait a long time, or until our departure from this life; instead, faith and a God-pleasing life which accompanies faith are very near us.
