You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.
Do you still remember the feeling when you received the news that you get the job you applied for? When she said "yes" on your marriage proposal? When you passed the board exam after months of review? When you got the top performer award? When you celebrated your birthday with your family where everyone is present?
You are probably reminiscing these good moments in your life right now. Do you know that there is a good news that is worth celebrating for every single day? This is the good news of peace proclaimed by the message of the gospel. This is the good news that Jesus is the Lord of All.
The gospel is for every nation. It is promoting love, peace, and reconciliation between all nations and God. Jesus is the fulfillment of what is said in the Old Testament saying How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” (Isaiah 52:7).
Jesus Christ is not just Lord of Israel, He is the Lord of all peoples, the King of all Kings. God's favor is available for all and we are all witnesses to this great news. We receive the news not to just keep it to ourselves. We, as witnesses, are called to share it with others as well. In the world we have today, there is a great need to hear a news that brings peace and hope.
Like any wonderful news or event that occurs in our life, it makes us so grateful that we love sharing it, one is through the social media. How about the message of the Good News? How will you share this with the people around you? How will you share this with the world?
