Kingdom of Heaven

Matthew 4:17 17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” (NIV)

 Jesus began His ministry of preaching.  He called people to repent as John had been doing.  But John talked about One Who would follow him Who is greater than he is.  Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is near.  They didn’t realize how very near it was. Jesus contained the kingdom of heaven and seeing how He lived on this earth gives us a glimpse of how the kingdom of heaven is.  We are blessed to have His Holy Spirit dwelling in us.  As we learn more about Jesus and experience more of the Holy Spirit we are given glimpses of the Kingdome of Heaven for, since the Holy Spirit is in us, the kingdom of heaven is also in us.  We can start experiencing it to some degree right now.  Take time to meditate on Jesus and His words and allow yourself to really feel His presence and the presence of the Holy Spirit within you and realize a little of the kingdom of heavem.
