The Kingdom of God, Part 1

The Kingdom of God, Part 1



Imagine what the Roman audience of Mark’s gospelmust have thought when they heard that this Jesus had comeannouncing the impending presence of the Kingdom of God!These Romans knew something about kingdoms, about empires,and they would certainly have been curious to know what thisKingdom entailed, and what its citizens would be like.In the passage we study today we are introduced to Jesus’method (preaching), His message (the Gospel of God) and Hiskingdom command (repent and believe in the Gospel). And lestwe think that His call is simply to accept the facts, we are shownthat this belief will be demonstrated in a radical re-alignment oflife. Those who believe in the Gospel will recognize that their verybest option is to entrust both their present and eternal well-beinginto the hands of Jesus Christ, and leave all to follow Him.
