Newman: in the heart

Tuesday, October 23, 2012
    Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you.”
    —Luke 17:20-21 (NIV)
    He who attempts to set up God’s kingdom in his heart, furthers it in the world.
    ... John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890), Sermons, Bearing on Subjects of the Day, London: J. G. F. & J. Rivington, 1844, p. 151 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, take Your place in my heart.
