“‘The time has come,’ Jesus said. ‘The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!’” (Mark 1:15).
Jesus draws near to us. He brings to us the power of a new life. It’s not a new life that’s created by our faith. It’s a new life that comes to us from Jesus, our Saviour. Everything changes when Jesus comes to us: “If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5:17). When Jesus comes to us, he comes in the power of “the kingdom of God” – “righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” ( Romans 14:17).
