We all like to hear good news.
A baby is born.
We got a raise.
Our child got an A in school.
There is not better news than the Good News Jesus brought to us when he came to earth.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him will not perish but will have eternal life.” John 3:16.
Great news! News that needs to be shared!
Jesus tells the disciples and us several times in the New Testament that he came to make us fishers of men.
That’s why we’re here.
Jesus’ last direction to us before he went home to heaven was to Go!
Go and make disciples.
Of people of all nations.
Teaching them everything he has taught us.
And he will be with us through the end of our life here on earth so he can walk with us into heaven.
Towards the end of every service at my church, the Good News is shared. Everyone hearing this Good News is given the opportunity to accept God’s gift of salvation.
During this time, I can feel the cloud of God’s presence filling our church.
Yes, God is there all of the time.
But, as his plan for saving us from eternal death is explained, I can feel an extra sense of his presence. I feel God’s blessings coming down, covering us with his approval as his Good News spreads out over my church family.
The Good News of God’s grace radiates through my church family every service.
The glory of the LORD is never more evident than when we are doing what he has called us to do.
The Good News.
Who can we share it with today?
Thank you, Abba Father.
