Jesus talked a lot about the Kingdom of God. He literally meant, the span of God’s reign and leadership. The word kingdom brings up a lot of stuff from the middle ages – knights, castles, princesses – stuff that has no real place in what Jesus meant. The word country or nation may make more sense for us. For example, God’s nation is where the basic constitution is about loving God and loving others. There’s a kind of bill of rights. But the way of this nation – is higher ground; the kind Jesus talked about in labeling the roads, the narrow path which leads to life and the broad road which leads to death. In this book, Paul talks about what has been called the principle of the path. That direction – not your intentions – determine your destination!
