The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel. (Mark 1:15)
With these words, Jesus is telling us that it’s time to get started on our journey to give up worrying by growing closer to Him. We may have thought about doing it for years, but now it’s time to actually begin!
Here’s what I wrote in Give Up Worry For Good…
Ready or not, now is the time to begin your effort to give up worry. Yesterday is a memory, and tomorrow is not guaranteed to anyone; I have only today to do all those things I should be doing to grow spiritually. This verse gives me a sense of urgency about getting my spiritual life in order today.
The time is now. The kingdom is near. Jesus is ready to help us. I’m ready. How about you?
