God’s love is free, unconditional and always available.

Mark 6:12

So they went off and preached repentance.

+++

When Jesus sent off the apostles…they were not sent off to preach threats of punishment from an angry god.

That would be “bad news” indeed.

They were sent out to tell the “Good News” of God’s unconditional love.

They were sent out to tell all people to repent…which means: “change directions.”

The message was…and still is…to turn away from all the empty ways you are looking for happiness…and turn toward God. 

Power, prestige and possessions are not bad in themselves…but they will never provide lasting happiness.

There will never be enough to satisfy what is a soul need, not physical need.

Since God is Love (1 John 4:8), then what you need is Love.

And the Good News is…this Love is eternal and totally free.

When you know that you know that you know you are loved unconditionally…your heart will melt.

You will want to share this Love with others. 

You will want others to turn toward this same Love.

It is truly all you need.
