Mark 1:15 (NIV)
“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!”
The time has come. Ah-ha!! That sounds good. Christmas! The kingdom ushered in.
Most of us assume that this kingdom thing would have been better if there had been some major trouncing of Romans, a bit more fire in the sky. As though we could handle that…Most of us panic if our wifi is down.
The kingdom of God is always near. People are mostly rank amateurs, cowards and failures, but there is the King, standing at the door of heaven saying come in, be here with Me.
Abide with Me now.
