Would you like hear some good news today?
I was reading an ancient book this morning and I in it I found this very good news.
“For Moses writes that the law’s way of making a person right with God requires obedience to all of its commands. But faith’s way of getting right with God says, “Don’t say in your heart, ‘Who will go up to heaven?’ (to bring Christ down to earth). And don’t say, ‘Who will go down to the place of the dead?’ (to bring Christ back to life again).” In fact, it says, “The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” And that message is the very message about faith that we preach: If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Romans 10:5-13 – NLT.
What? You already knew that? Oh that is fanatic! Hooray! We are family then you and me. We are children of God, adopted, purchased by the blood of Jesus.
Well yes hooray for us, but did you know that as God’s kids we have a job to do, a mission?
Yes! We have a mission! I found out about in the very next paragraph of the ancient book.
“But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!” But not everyone welcomes the Good News, for Isaiah the prophet said, “ Lord, who has believed our message?” So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.”
Romans 10:14-17 – NLT
The message of good news needs to be told, to everyone everywhere! And we, you and I have been entrusted to tell the rest of the world the good news, God loves them and sent Jesus to die to pay for their sins, and then God raised Him up on the third day!
It’s great that you know Jesus, it’s amazing about God’s grace, shouldn’t we now get busy, telling the world about this amazing grace of God’s? I agree, yes, let’s do that! Let’s start today, right where we live.
Ready? Woohoo let’s go tell the world, our neighbors and friends about God’s love! Yes! ❤️
