“And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the Kingdom of God.” – Mark 12:34
Read: Psalms 25:14; Mark 11:23
Jesus declared to the scribe who questioned Him in Mark 12: 34 that because he acknowledged one of the Laws of the Kingdom, he was not very far from inheriting its benefits. It is most tragic that many Christians have embraced the Kingdom of God, but they continually fall short of inheriting its blessings because of their failure to imbibe its laws and principles. Why not do a self-check today and change whatever is hindering your blessings from flowing? Do you love the Lord with all your heart and soul or are you just playing the game of religion? Do you truly love your neighbor? Remember that you will reap the harvest of whatsoever you sow. Are you sowing the right seeds for a good future? If you want to prosper, you must live a life of obedience to God; In order to be distinguished in life, you must walk in wisdom and the fear of the Lord; the only way to do exploits and overcome obstacles in life is to walk by faith. Do a self-check and pray the following prayer for yourself today.
