Re. Spiritual Formation Location Means Nothing

The River Raisin, Monroe

"If I were living somewhere different I could grow spiritually."

That...  is...   false. 

Because the kingdom of God is not some locale; it's not some geographical place. The kingdom of God is the rule, or reign, of God. God reigns wherever hearts allow him to. And, of course, God's reign is not conditional on our hearts. We don't control the King.

If God's kingdom was a physical place, then bazillions of people could never enter into it. But it's not a place. 

This is good news.

It's good news because... matter where you live matter what your circumstances are

...irregardless of your age or your ethnic background

God's kingdom is near, and here.

Pray "God, let your kingdom, your rule, your reign, come...  now. Here."
