What kind of preacher was he? Did he use notes? Was he jumping around when he preached?
But it’s not the type of preacher but what is said that is important. When he preached Jesus:
- brought light
- brought good news
- talked in a way people can understand
- was focused
- showed people how to apply it
A kingdom is just where we live
Jesus was asking what kingdom do we want to live in because Jesus is saying the kingdom of God is near.
We are born into the kingdom of darkness. Drugs, deceit, despair, disobedience, depression, death, defeat. But He has delivered us from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light.
We ought not to live lives in the ashes back there but we need to repent! For the kingdom of God is at hand.
We, we, need to set our affections on things above rather than the ashes of yesterday.
And we pray – Thy kingdom come! In my life, in my church, in my community.
