Amen Corner: Sunday Stewardship Inspiration

Good News! Change of Plan

“The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” (Mk 1:15)  Jesus comes out of the desert to begin his ministry by announcing the kingdom of God, telling us to repent and believe in the gospel – which means good news. To repent is to regret our missteps, and choose instead to walk humbly with Jesus in radical faith and faithfulness in how we live and give of ourselves. We live in a world where bad news is prevalent, sometimes for us in a very personal way. Jesus ushers in a change of plan…a new Rule where even our eventual death holds no power over us if we repent and believe. Will we? Will I?
