From the Kitchen Table
Victorious Living Day 32
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” John 1:14-15
There’s an important point to make, lesson to learn and it’s this, we turn to what we trust in. That’s what repentance is, it’s turning away from one thing to turn to another because we trust in that other thing. Jesus isn’t asking us to finally feel sorry and ask for His forgiveness, He’s asking us to turn away from our way of living and to His way of living. Repentance is something we all must do at the get-go and it’s something we must be willing to do as we go. This life of God begins with repentance and continues with repentance. Walking in the supernatural presence and power of God will involve of repenting of our old ways of thinking and living to live in His way of thinking and living. But we won’t turn away from something to nothing. We can’t! Our spirits live by faith. We all believe something. God is asking us today to believe, not only in Him, but in His gospel. The gospel is God’s promise, perspective, purpose and practice for a life that is free, fantastic and forever. The secret is to turn away from the world’s way to live in the God way because we’ve decided to trust in His way. The secret to living this life is to choose His way over our way.
