The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.' Today Matthew tells us that Jesus was so moved by the needs of the people that he sent out the twelve not just to preach but to “cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons.” Jesus recognized that the ministry needed to be shared by others in order to make the Kingdom a reality. The situation is no different today. Take a moment to consider the “diseases” and “illnesses” that need to be cured in our day. Don’t just preach the Kingdom but work to bring about the Kingdom.
