Jesus' First Sermon

How do you receive the benefits of the Kingdom?  How do you partake of the richness of Heaven on earth? Jesus says 'by repenting'.  This is an idea that is quite foreign to our modern culture.
People want to feel sorry for their sins.  People do not want to turn from their sins.  To put it simply - to repent is to turn from darkness to light.  Repentance means embracing the Kingdom by submitting to the King.

-Uri Brito, commenting on Matthew 4.17
