35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. Matthew 9:35

We are only privy to the details of a few healing miracles. We have no idea what the other diseases and sicknesses were about or how many. On top of that he taught in the synagogues wherever he went. Plus – and this often gets overlooked – he proclaimed the Gospel message, the Good News of the kingdom of heaven.

So what was this Good News that He preached? What did He preach?

From BibleHub, A call to repentance, the promise of the kingdom of heaven, and that he Himself would be in charge of that kingdom.

Because He was healing and teaching in the villages, people would see who He was and what He did for the people. His actions matched His words completely.

That’s not always easy to do nowadays, but not at all impossible.

We just need to supernatural strength to do it.

We need the Holy Spirit daily to remind us whose we are and why we’re here. If someone cuts us off, they cut us off. If someone gossips about us, that’s on them. If someone lays into us at work, we can defend ourselves but not cross the line of maligning that person in person or behind their back.

I know, much easier said than done, but He set the standard, and by the Holy Spirit’s help, we can meet it.
