Scripture Reading

“And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

Luke 17:20-21 (KJV)

Introductory Remarks: 

The Reverend Don Nedd was inspired with a Blueprint for Living Better Lives. That blueprint was adopted by the Universal Foundation for Better Living, Inc. (UFBL) Board of Directors in 1974 as its Statement of Faith.

Last week we addressed Statement 1 of the blueprint:

We Believe that it is God’s Will that every individual on the face of this earth should live a healthy, happy, and prosperous life.

Today, we address Statement 2: 
We Believe that such a life is within the reach of each one of us and the way to its attainment begins with the realization that the Kingdom of God is within waiting for us to bring it into expression.

Quote:

“[B]ecome consciously aware that the kingdom we seek is already within us. It is the essence of our very being and we have only to bring it into expression.” 

The Rev. Dr. Helen W. Carry

ASSIGNMENT:

Read the Statement of Faith booklet. Contemplate how you can bring forth more of God’s Kingdom benefits/promises in your life.
