The world & the Kingdom of God

Jesus surprises us completely in the gospel of the 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time. “Fire I have come to bring and how I would like it to burn already! I am not here to bring peace, I am here to bring division.” What fire does Jesus want to see burning, and what division does He push us into? Actually, we shouldn’t be surprised because Jesus always makes a distinction between the world we live in and the Kingdom of God. The world and the Kingdom of God are not equal: they are opposed to each other. Are we part of the world or are we going to the Kingdom of God? What does Jesus want from us?
