Jesus announces and initiates the kingdom of God. This reality is at hand because Jesus is present in our midst. This great gift means that eternity has already begun for those who believe in Him.

I need to live today as if I am already experiencing Heaven. To be a citizen of God’s kingdom means that I am prepared to encounter Jesus today.

O Jesus, may I seek You out today. In my search, may others encounter You in me. I thank you for the gift of eternal life.
