The Kingdom

After a reading of Luke chapter 8, it strikes me that the thorns are very much the luxuries that we see day to day here in our country.  These "thorns" are choking us, we need to cut them down so that we are able to get through to the world and present that there is a God who wants them to return to their Father.
I enjoyed looking at the ministry of Christ throughout the gospels, and I noticed that there is an overwhelming amount (108) of references by Christ about the Kingdom. What is it to live in this Kingdom?
