Topic : GOD’S KINGDOM IS HERE
“From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near” Matthew 4:17, NIV
A business owner travelled and left his business in care of a supervisor. After a while, his workers began to misbehave.
The Supervisor kept warning them but they paid no attention. One day, the business mogul called to inform the supervisor of his soon return.
The Supervisor in turn informed the workers and this enabled some of them to amend their ways, to avoid their boss’ punishment.
The text for today explains how Jesus went about preaching as He warned people to repent from their evil deeds and turn back to God.
He also noted that the judgment of God on sinners will soon come (v. 17). And when God’s judgment comes, no sinner will escape it.
Our world today is permeated by so much evil deeds been perpetrated by evil people. Hence, God is calling on all sinners and evildoers to repent because His judgment will come upon them.
Are you a sinner and/or evildoer? God wants you to stop it and live holy life. Sin brings all sorts of hazards to one’s life. But living for God brings un-imaginable success and favour.
Insight: Un-repentant sinners are daily being exposed to Satan’s attack.
Prayer: My father and God! Deliver me from the power of sin and help me to live for you.
RBT Passage: Leviticus 14 – 15.
