If you want to be part of the kingdom, all you need to do is say yes.
(We need to come to Jesus on HIS terms, not ours!)
Matthew 10:1, 5-7
Turn your heart back to God because the kingdom of heaven is near.
Barrier (defn): any obstacle that prevents movement or access. Anything that restrains or obstructs progress. A limit or boundary of any kind.
Jesus broke the barrier of sin.
Jesus broke the barrier of death.
Jesus wants to break through the belief barrier.
The only barrier Jesus won’t break through is a heart that won’t let him in.

Hold on to DAY THREE HOPE when we’re going through days one or two.
John 14:32-33 Behold, the hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home… I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
Hold on to DAY THREE HOPE.
