14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand;repent and believe in the gospel.”
Repent and Believe.
Law and Gospel.
God is far off, holy and wholly worthy.
You have failed Him.
You have let Him down.
You have fallen short.
You are not worthy.
Change your mind.
God is near and offers Himself wholly for us.
He has succeeded.
He has come down to be with us.
He has finished the work.
He is worthy of all our praise.
Conform your mind to Christ’s.
Turn to Him in faith.
Trust what He has done.
Be crucified with Him so that you may rise and reign with Him.
Repent of the old man. Believe in the God-man.
Repent of your old ways. Believe in the Way.
The Kingdom of God is at hand.
