The Kingdom of God Is Not Something You See with Your Physical Eyes
The primary subject about which Jesus taught was the kingdom of God. It is not a kingdom you can see with your physical eyes, but it’s the most important kingdom that has ever existed or ever will exist.
No one physically saw the kingdom of God in Jesus. Instead, they saw a first-century Jew in his early 30′s – probably looking no different, physically speaking, than any of his countrymen. What folks could see that was different, however, was the effect of the kingdom of God in the life of Jesus. Things happened around him that were not happening around anyone else.
The kingdom of God is something you see with the eyes of your heart – that is, your spiritual understanding. You submit your thoughts to God’s oversight, only thinking those kinds of thoughts that you know will please Him. This is the way Jesus lived. And he lived this way, that we might live this way, too.
