Daily Inspiration, December 19th

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying,…repent ye, and believe the gospel.” (Mark 1: 14-15)

Jesus came into Galilee like a breath of fresh air. He came into every place into which he entered with a message, an open secret, one that was meant to save and to regenerate life and being universally. He didn’t create the gospel, but he was vitally aware of it and couldn’t keep such good news to himself.

For that is the gospel that Jesus taught and demonstrated: the good news of Life, of a kingdom of good at hand, available, ready, and real. He didn’t look for the good news or tell us to hope for it with him. What he asked was that his listeners of then and now, repent and believe.

Repentance is a change of thought, a release from an acceptance of an erroneous, sinful, limited, cynical, material, fear-filled point of view, for a new and fresh perspective. It is disagreeing with the old and tired and disappointing for the good news of life in and of God, built of Spirit and of Love. Jesus is asking us to believe in this wonderful news. He asks us to give up that resignation to a sense of coming up from dust and dirt, and feeling dirty, damaged, afraid and ashamed, and to instead believe in the bright and fresh and sweet and satisfying: the kingdom of God, good.

Let’s be eager to believe this gospel, this good news, without qualification and without conditions. Let’s repent of our shackles, change our thought about their reality and power, and gratefully enjoy our freedom.
