Repent, for the Kingdom of God Is No Longer at Hand

If the kingdom of God was “at hand” two thousand years ago, it is certainly here by now.  And, indeed, the kingdom of God is among us, in our midst.  It is here and now.  It has been here and now for some time…and always will be.  For more, see  The Kingdom of God Is Here and Now )

Therefore, we have all the more reason to repent.  Repent of what?  Of living without God.  Of ignoring our Creator.  Of acting like He has no business in our daily lives.

How do we repent?  Call upon His name.  What is His name?  His names are many, but, most notably, it is Jesus of Nazareth, Messiah of Israel.

When we repent, what will He do?  He will forgive us of our sins and give us the Holy Spirit to guide our thoughts, words, and deeds.  Through the Holy Spirit we will be aware of God’s thoughts toward us.

And what will we do then?  We will stop living selfishly and instead give our lives in love to those around us.  We will not seek our own good, but the good of those around us. 

And what will God do then?  He will be very happy every day that we live this way.
