The kingdom of God is always present for him who desires and wills it. When a man's disposition and way of life are like that of an angel, most assuredly this is the kingdom of God. For God indeed is said to rule as King when nothing worldly meddles in the governing of our souls and when in every respect we live not in this world. This manner of life we have within us, that is to say, we have within us when we desire and will of it. We do not need to wait a long time, or until our departure from this life; instead, faith and a God-pleasing life, which accompanies faith, are very near us.
