In case you haven’t caught on yet, this was all long before the advent of home computers. Today I would do the message on the computer, make a file and email it to the radio station. Now, that’s really some good news.
The Bible is full of news, a lot of good news along with some not-so-good news.
For those who walked in obedience to the Lord’s commands, there were blessings. For those who walked in disobedience, there were consequences.
The good news I have for you today is, because of His grace, there is eternal life. Walk in obedience to His Word, do right things, worship Him and there are blessings. I want to share this good news with everyone I reach.
As I observe humanity every day, I observe a lot of unhappiness along with an unsettled life. Wandering from relationship to relationship, job to job or, none at all, listless and depressed, humans are in great need of hope and true love.
So smile at someone today; give someone a good word. Share the joy of the Lord with someone. That really is part of spreading good news to others. In this crazy world, we need good news and a lot of it.
Good news was given when the birth of Jesus Christ was announced and, the good news hasn’t stopped. Yes, I would love to start hearing good news from some of those far places, but if we believe in scripture, then we believe it gets worse before it gets better.
Keep the faith and share it at the same time.
