17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matt 4:17 (NKJV)These are the first words of Jesus recorded in the book of Matthew after the temptation in the wilderness. This is His part of His first sermon preached to the crowd of people. This sets the standard in with He preached. Why is this important? Because it is the message that He shared to all the people He met. This is the one message that we need to hear and understand to have the life that God intended to have. This is the first step in entering into the life that was ordained for us before the beginning of time.The word repent, in this text refers to the act of changing ones mind and ways. Jesus is saying stop what you are doing and reconsider what you are doing and where you are going. We are on the wrong path. We are on the path to destruction. We need to open our eyes and see things as God does. We are living our lives doing our own thing are own way. We have not considered God's way or plan for our live. We are following the dictates of our exceedingly wicked hearts. We therefore are in danger of hell fire upon our deaths. Jesus is warning us about our future is in danger unless we change.Why else is Jesus asking for us to repent? Because the kingdom of heaven is at hand. It is near. It is within reach. But we can not grasp it if we and going the wrong way. We can only grasp it by changing our direction and minds. We are seeking after the things of this world rather then the things of God.What is the kingdom of heaven or of God? 17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17 NKJVThese should be the things that we seek after. These things are the things that bring fulfillment in our lives here is world of trouble and sorrow. This is the path that God has in mind for us, but we have gotten lost. We have forgotten our way. We like sheep have gone astray. But the Good Shepherd came to seek after those who were lost. To show us the way of life.If we follow His way we will not miss out on our dreams in this life. He will take care of it all. All we have to do is seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these thing shall be added unto us. Matthew 6:33 New King JamesThis is the gospel message made simple. We are going the wrong way. Jesus wants us to join Him on the right path that leads to life in this world and eternal life in the future.
