And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. Mark 16:15-16 (NLT)
Have you ever received good news about something and couldn’t wait to share your excitement with others? It could be a new job, a promotion, a new or upcoming birth, an engagement, or a baby’s first word or steps. We are so excited about this new thing that we can’t wait to tell everyone about our news. We want to shout it from the rooftops. We want others to share in the joy we are experiencing. Once we share our news, others join in and celebrate with us.
Do you realize that we have the best news ever? We know the way to prevent eternal separation from God. We know people without the saving grace of God are on their way to an eternal existence separated from God (who loved us so much that He sent His Son to pay the price so we could spend eternity with Him). We are told that we need to share this message with a lost and dying world. We need to bring them the hope of salvation. It’s time for us to deliver the Good News!
