Paul Mulroney 22nd January 2017 (Matthew 4:17-25)Paul Mulroney, January 22, 2017
Part of the Sunday series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Turn from Sins - anything that takes us away from God. Repentance is the process where we turn 180 degrees away from sin and towards God. God gives us the means (the cross of Jesus) and the power (through the Holy Spirit) to overcome sin
Turn to God - make God our priority. What do we think about? What do we spend our money on? Where do we spend our time? That is our priority. Is it God?
The Kingdom of Heaven is near. When the kingdom of heaven is near we transform this world to be more like the one that God intended for us.

17 From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
18 While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. 19 And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 Immediately they left their nets and followed him. 21 And going on from there he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and he called them. 22 Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.
23 And he went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people. 24 So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those afflicted with various diseases and pains, those oppressed by demons, epileptics, and paralytics, and he healed them. 25 And great crowds followed him from Galilee and the Decapolis, and from Jerusalem and Judea, and from beyond the Jordan.
