Turn Toward Love


Matthew 4:17

From that time on, Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

What better way to start the year than with the words of Jesus at the very beginning of his public ministry? When John the Baptist was arrested…Jesus’ ministry began. It was time. Jesus started with the word “Repent”…which means: “Turn around!” Turn away from the ways you are looking for fulfillment and happiness. Turn toward the only source of fulfillment that can truly satisfy and bring you peace and wholeness (or “salvation”). Jesus said that he is “the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6). Follow Jesus and his ways and you will experience God’s unconditional love, mercy, grace, forgiveness and compassion. The “kingdom of heaven” will truly be “at hand”…right here…right now.
