Heralding the Kingdom – Mark 1:14-15

“Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” A herald was a messenger who carried or proclaimed important news on behalf of a political authority. A herald was charged with making royal proclamations and bearing messages of state between sovereigns. Isn’t it interesting that Jesus was not only the Head of State, the King of God’s Kingdom, but He was also its first Herald? When Jesus came into Galilee proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God, He was the King of the very Kingdom He was heralding. He is still heralding His Kingdom today, except by His Spirit through us. We have been appointed to the position of Kingdom Heralds and our duty is to proclaim that the Kingdom of God is at hand and that people should repent and believe in the good news of the Savior King.
