Matthew 3.1-2 – April 14, 2020

Matthew 3:1–2

In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” (Matthew 3:1–2, NIV)

It is interesting that the message of John is the same that Jesus would proclaim when he began to preach: The Kingdom is near!

Thought Questions:

How important was it for John the Baptist to precede Jesus with the message that the Kingdom was near?

What does it mean to repent? What does it look like for someone to repent?

How does the message of God’s kingdom being near bring you comfort and peace? In what ways does this change the way you live your life?
