Jesus has a Message

Jesus had a message for the people of His day and a message for the people of today.  The Kingdom of God is near.  When Jesus preached His message here on earth He was talking about how soon He would usher in salvation with all its benefits.  Through His death, burial and resurrection mankind would be able to have forgiveness of their sins and fellowship with God.  Through His broken body we could have healing in every area of our lives.  Through His shed blood we can be cleansed of every sin we have ever committed in our past, present and future.  I love redemption because if we sin all we have to do is confess it, renounce it and receive God forgiveness.  John made this concept clear in 1 John 1:9.  Today more than any other time man needs to draw close to God.  We need to have the Kingdom of God within us.  Paul tells us what the Kingdom of God is composed of in Rom 14:17.  He said it was composed of righteousness, peace and joy, in the Holy Spirit.  Let these qualities flow out of your heart to others.  The Kingdom is not to be just enjoyed personally but to be shared with others.  It must never be about us but others.  That was the motto of William Booth the founder of the Salvation Army.  It must also be our motto.  Go change your world for Jesus Christ today.
