A few “Kingdom” quotes from Dallas Willard

A few "Kingdom" quotes from Dallas Willard

Indeed, the social and political realm, along with the individual heart, is the only place in all of creation where the kingdom of God, or his effective will, is currently permitted to be absent…

…So when Jesus directs us to pray, “Thy kingdom come,” he does not mean we should pray for it to come into existence. Rather, we pray for it to take over at all points in the personal, social, and political order where it is now excluded: “On earth as it is in heaven.”

The Divine Conspiracy, HarperCollins Publishers, 1997
