14 After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. 15 ‘The time has come,’ he said. ‘The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!’
Yesterday we thought about how the message of and about Jesus is the gospel message or good news. Here Jesus talks about why this is good news – in him, God’s Kingdom draws near to us. God’s Kingdom is the promised renewed and restored life where people live in relationship with God on earth as in heaven. He makes it available to us, through our placing our faith and allegiance in him; through following him.
Jesus, I trust my life to you.
