Gospel of the Kingdom

Matthew 9:35-36

Jesus went around to all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and illness. At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them because they were troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd.

Do you ever feel like one of the people in this crowd? Are you troubled over something or feel abandoned? Each of us has a wounded place inside in need of unconditional love and compassion. We have an issue or a struggle that we just can’t seem to deal with on our own. It is a part of the human condition that Jesus knew well. Jesus did not come to these people with a message of condemnation or fear. He came with a message of compassion and comfort. Jesus went everywhere “proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and illness.” He wanted to be with the people who were suffering and in need of help. He wanted them to know that all were included and accepted in the eyes of God. In the “gospel of the kingdom”…Love overcomes and prevails. God’s grace wins the day! The Risen Christ wants to be your shepherd today. Bring your troubles to Him.
