“say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you!'” Sharing our faith in its essence is declaring that God’s Kingdom, that is the time and reality of God’s rule, has come near. This reality is true whether people believe and welcome the news (vs. 9) or not (vs.11). What difference does it make if God rules the world? What do you consider to be the most important thing to share about your faith with others? Almighty, Ever-loving God, grant that we might follow your ways and proclaim your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.
