The Bible passage that can change your life.

If you asked 100 people what the single-most important passage in the Bible is, you’d probably get 80 to 90 different answers. But I believe there’s a single passage that is so powerful—and so personifies the real teachings of Jesus—that it has the power to literally change your life.

It starts with Luke 17:20:

One day the Pharisees asked Jesus, “When will the Kingdom of God come?” Jesus replied, “The Kingdom of God can’t be detected by visible signs,”

It continues in Luke 17:21, and here’s the important part:

nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you.”

Depending on the translation, you may see the end line written as “the kingdom of God is among you” or “the kingdom of God is in your midst”. Either way, its meaning is the same. The kingdom of God is not a faraway place, nor is it up in the heavens. It exists right here and now, within us and all around us.

What does it mean to live in the kingdom of God?

It means that all things in life are possible, because we have the ability to tap into an infinite source of wisdom and guidance at any given moment—a source that lives within our own souls. It is the God within and gives us a path to all we could want or need in this lifetime.

Find the God within and trust it is there, and you will discover that the things you seek are available to you. The answers to every day problems are revealed, sometimes instantaneously. Guidance for bigger life issues is offered through an ongoing internal dialog, by relying on God to work through your intuition to give you the direction you seek.

The knowledge that the kingdom of God in our midst means that we have the ability to enjoy heaven on this earth, during all our waking moments. It means that if our hearts are in the right place and our desires our true to the best interests of ourselves and those around us, we can enjoy lives of limitless fulfillment and bliss.

  1. Hello Tom, I just came across your page and it is really interesting. I feel like I should share what I think if you are interested? I see from your posts and tweets that you are familiar with the Bible and I apologise if I come across as patronising, I do not mean to at all.

    I don’t think what you have said in this hits the most important thing that Jesus was trying to explain. We are under judgement and His sacrifice on the cross is the only way for us to be saved. Yes we have been given God inside us, the Holy Spirit, and also we are given guidance through the Holy Spirit. However, this does not mean we will “enjoy lives of limitless fulfillment and bliss. ” To suffer under the name of Christ is to gain. (Philippians 3 “7But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things.”)

    Later in Luke 17, Christ says “33 Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will keep it.”

    It is good to want God’s kingdom to come, but in a fallen world you will not ever find it. Look to where God wants you to be.

    “Praise be to the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight” Ephesians 1:3-4

    Lastly, I think you may have a similar view to what I had when I used to look at the Bible. Looking for something that will change your world and make everything ok or make sense of things. And it is in there, but if you really want to change then it is a relationship with Jesus that will help you most. God is the most powerful being of all time and space, yet he wants a relationship with us. That is so great.

    I hope your spiritual journey leads to redemption in Christ as mine as I feel mine has lead me to your blog.
