July 22

Matthew 3:2
"Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."

I guess what sticks out most in this verse to me is "the kingdom of heaven is at hand". Do we really think of it as being right here and now? We should live each day as if God was really here with us - right here - right now. I think we have that tendancy to put it all off, think about His return as being later, not today, tomorrow, this week or this month. But in all reality we should remember that even thought Jesus is not here where we can see Him physically, He is really here with us at all times. We should not wait to say we are sorry for doing things that are wrong. We should not wait for us to get caught when doing wrong, we should own up to our sinful ways. God already knows what we are doing! Are you really sorry for the ways your are acting, or do you have the attitude of "I can do it later?" What if you later doesn't come. We are not promised tomorrow. Jesus may not come back today, but your life could end today. As a believer you will not go to hell for that sin, but clear it all up with God, so He doesn't have to bring it up! Live each day being refreshed and renewed with a clear conscience so that your can really enjoy all that God has in store for you!
