Daily Bible Podcast Day 106 – 1 Samuel 18, 1 Chronicles 6, Psalm 11, Matthew 3

February 14, 2013 in Podcasts by Nathan


“In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea and saying, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.’” ~Matthew 3:1-2

In order to be a part of the kingdom of heaven, repentance is required. Repentance also seems to go hand-in-hand with the arrival of the kingdom. As it descends, people repent. I wonder if the kingdom of heaven is very much present where I live. I’m not always repentant, nor do I seem to see much repentance in the churches I know.

I don’t know if repentance is the result of the kingdom of heaven coming near or if repentance is required in order for the kingdom to come near. I am not as repentant as I should be. I also don’t feel like I see the kingdom of heaven much where I live. Too much is wrong.

Father, send Your kingdom. So much is wrong where I am and only You can set it right. Too many delight in evil, too many are broken, too many are hungry, too many are far from you. I am too often broken, far from You, or delighting in evil. I repent of my ways. King of heaven, send Your kingdom.
