“The kingdom of God is at hand for you”
Jesus sent the 72 disciples to different towns and told them to proclaim that the kingdom of God is at hand. These words are addressed to us by Jesus. We might have different responses depending on our understanding what kingdom of God is. But the first thing Jesus tells to the disciples that the first thing they have to say to the people is “Peace be with you”.
God is offering you peacefulness. God wants to heal you. Physical, emotional and even healing on broken relationships. We are invited to reflect on the kingdom of God so that we may be able to accept it and live on it.
Holy Spirit, help us to understand the kingdom of God so that we may be able to live out God’s promises and to share it to others
