Matthew 3

4 Jan

Continuing going through the book of Matthew one chapter a day with one thought for the day. Today is Matthew chapter 3

3:3
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”
This sounds to many like “have a good cry and get religion.” However, stripping away the cultural baggage we’ve attached over 2 millennium leaves you with something closer to:
“Here comes God’s new world: Turn around and face it”

Will be teaching on this later this month.
