Here begins the wonderful story of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. Mark 1v1
People with power, how would you like them to help you. Maybe bring justice through getting rid of all those people you do not like, or a common saying ‘to make our nation great again’ This is what the Jewish people were waiting for in the time of Jesus.
But Jesus did not come as an all-powerful, conquering King. He took on the role of a servant. Listening, caring, healing, teaching people. The Kingdom of Heaven, is where there is no conflict, no sickness, no death. It is where God lives with his people. A relationship Kingdom where we seek the best, caring for the broken, the poor, those in prison. Releasing those who have been in bondage and stuck with a habit, people who have chosen the wrong path, to show them a new one. What kind of King would you like to choose?
Dear God, may we be Kingdom of God people, where we bring your Kingdom to earth. To change things through your grace, mercy, love and peace. Where we tend to those who are broken, sick, in prison, poor. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen
