CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK AND ACT

Matthew 4:12-17
When Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, he went back to Galilee. He left Nazareth and made his home in Capernaum on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. This was in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali. So what the prophet Isaiah had said came true: “Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, on the way to the sea, across the Jordan River, Galilee, where foreigners live! The people who lived in darkness have seen a bright light. A light has risen for those who live in a land overshadowed by death.”

From then on, Jesus began to tell people, “Turn to God and change the way you think and act, because the kingdom of heaven is near!”

With his cousin, John, in prison, Jesus begins preaching the same message that John had begun. “Turn to God and change the way you think and act, because the kingdom of heaven is near!” This message had not changed in the last 2000 years. The only change maybe it’s that the kingdom of heaven is nearer now than then.

The kingdom is here now but it’s incomplete. The followers of Jesus declare him as their King, the Messiah, the anointed one. It is the duty of each and every person in the kingdom to carry that same message everywhere and everywhen, “Turn to God and change the way you think and act.”
