Matthew 3: 1-4, “In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying:
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord;
Make His paths straight.’” (Prophecy of Isaiah 40:3)
After Jesus baptism and temptation in the wilderness, He began His ministry. It says in Matthew 4:17, “From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.””
Are we followers of Jesus and therefore preaching repentance? What does repentance mean to you?
